Throughout your career, you’ve probably experienced first-hand the value of business networking. And you’ve probably noticed that you don’t network only to advance your career. You also use networking as a tool for getting the job done.
By providing structured and intentional guidance to employees at all levels of your organization on how to build effective internal and external networks, you can help them do their jobs more effectively. In this webcast, consultant, author, and networking expert Lynne Waymon will showcase the role HR can play in teaching employees how to develop social acumen and impact the social capital of your organization. She’ll talk about how networking can help them uncork bureaucratic bottlenecks, work cross-functionally, and collaborate more effectively with internal and external partners.
In the July 2011 issue of the Harvard Business Review, Cross and Thomas report that, “Executives who rank in the top 20% of their companies have diverse but select networks made up of high-quality relationships with people who come from several different spheres and from up and down the corporate hierarchy.”
