” We hear this all the time from executives, other professionals, and MBA students. They tell us that networking makes them feel uncomfortable and phony – even dirty. Although some people have a natural passion for it – namely, the extroverts who love and thrive on social interaction – many understandably see it as brown-nosing, exploitative, and inauthentic.
Many if not most of us are ambivalent about networking. We know that it’s critical to our professional success, yet we find it taxing and often distasteful.
These strategies can help you overcome your aversion. By shifting to a promotion mindset, identifying and exploring shared interests, expanding your view of what you have to offer, and motivating yourself with a higher purpose, you’ll become more excited about and effective at building relationships that bear fruit for everyone.
