Are great networkers born or made? Born! Humans are born to networking. Networking is in our DNA. We have been doing it since the beginning of time. Early humans increased their chances of survival (whether they knew it or not) if they worked towards their mutual benefit.
Today, many people do not give themselves enough credit … they think they do not know how to network because they are comfortable with sales or are having trouble finding a job.
They forget that their life is full of all sorts of examples of great networking … they formed study groups in college … got information on good employment opportunities … they connected with a spouse (likely through networking).
We are born to network.
