Texte du rabat

Networking is not mere socializing--it is a vital personal and professional development skill. An effective network can make you more knowledgeable, help you address critical issues, accelerate your career, and even improve your health and well-being. It's just too important to be left to chance. With "The Connect Effect" you can take a conscious, systematic approach to networking. To begin with, Author Michael Dulworth helps you evaluate how network-savvy you are. Dulworth then identifies three distinct kinds of networks: personal, professional, and virtual, exploring their specific characteristics and offering strategies, tools, and resources for building up and making the best use of each one. Stories from Dulworth's over twenty years of experience running networks, as well as interviews with top executives, researchers, and thought leaders, provide insights and advice about how networks function in the real world.



Résumé
Networking is a critically important skill, but few people are aware of its power or know how to develop, maintain, and leverage networks over their lifetime. In The Connect Effect, Michael Dulworth reveals the surprising ways personal, professional, and virtual networks can transform our lives and offers innovative tools—including a test to measure your networking quotient (NQ)—to help you identify, expand, and use your network to improve your life and the lives of those around you.
