Today’s organizations are collaborative. With old command-and-control methods replaced by openness and transparency, networking has become an essential professional skill expected of everyone at every level.

Unveiling eight indispensable competencies for the new network-oriented workforce, Strategic Connections provides practical advice for building better, more productive business relationships. Listeners will discover how to

  • commit to a positive, proactive networking mindset;
  • align networking activities with individual and organizational objectives;
  • leverage their contacts by organizing them into strategic groups;
  • earn trust—a prerequisite for collaboration;
  • boost their social acumen and increase their likability;
  • master conversational skills and deepen interactions;
  • employ storytelling to make communications memorable; and
  • use networking to deliver value to the company.

Thanks to technology, new contacts are only a click away. But the level of connection and collaboration required for real success demands advanced face-to-face relationship-building skills. This audiobook gives you the tools you need to meet goals, execute strategies, foster innovation, and make yourself invaluable to your organization.
