Wouldn’t it be amazing if I had a network of people helping me throughout my career?
We spend loads of time talking to and learning from others, yet mention the word ‘networking’ and many people run a mile! We are naturally social beings, so what makes it so hard and painful? Why are there some people who network without thinking about it and others who view it as a necessary evil?
At Amazing If, we’re lucky enough to have both sides represented – someone who loves networking and is very good at it (Helen) and someone who avoided it until she realised it was actually pretty useful and you can learn how to do it your own way (Sarah)!
Networks are absolutely critical to supporting and nurturing us throughout our careers and the good news is that this is a skill that can be learnt and practiced.
This course is designed to help you think about the type of network you need and how to develop the relationships that matter in a way that’s authentic to you.
- Networks: why we need them, and why they’re worth it
- Your network: assess the strength of your networks (clue you should have at least 4!) and identify opportunities to improve
- Using your network: how to match the network you need with your career goals to accelerate growth
- Action: Dread networking? You’re not alone. We finish the course with practical hints and tips on how to develop an effective network
