    9. 9. What is Networking? • Building a network is a metaphor for building a team. • You’re building a circle of unique individual talents and skills that you know and can reach out to and you are, in turn, offering something special to your department and community through your unique talent. • Make networking a part of your weekly work priorities and experience the difference it makes.
    10. 10. Networking with Senior Leaders • Remember to be prepared to make connections at any events that you are attending. Being prepared for those events by preplanning and having a plan of action for those opportunities enhances the networking experience and results. • Suggestions include: – PREPARE: Set a goal, have your introduction ready and conversation starters. – ARRIVE EARLY: Introduce yourself as others enter. – PARTNER: Come with a friend for support. – REACH OUT: Introduce yourself to someone who is alone. – JOIN: Connect with people who seem talkative and friendly. – KEEP MOVING: Meet several people. Have a goal. – SHARE information, exchange business cards and write notes on the back of your cards to keep the information fresh. – And....LISTEN: More than 50 percent of communication is listening.
    11. 11. How to continue the conversation… • Here are some suggestions for continued contact: – Keep promises. – Follow up on any help that you’ve offered. – Tell contacts how they’ve helped you and offer how you can help in return. – Give, trade or pass on useful information. – Use social networking tools to your advantage. – Meet electronically by sending something that you think would be of value to someone, i.e., “I just read this article and thought of you.” That way you’re reaching out not only when you need something, but offering something unexpected.
