Networking 101: How to make a lasting impression

Networking 101: How to make a lasting impression | Women in Business | Scoop.it

Networking can feel like the professional equivalent of speed dating. And, like speed dating, you don't just want to make a good impression — you want to make a lasting one. So, how can you present yourself well and make meaningful connections when it feels like you're making small talk with people who are only half-listening?

The first step is to reframe your concept of networking. At your next event, remind yourself that it's less about empty chit-chat and more about making connections.

How do you make those?

By forgetting everything you thought you knew about networking small talk and, instead, tapping into the science of good conversation! Here are six strategies for being the most popular person to talk to at your next networking event.

What Will It Take to Achieve Gender Equality in Leadership?

What Will It Take to Achieve Gender Equality in Leadership? | Women in Business | Scoop.it

A recent study concluded that gender inequality is costing the global economy $12 trillion annually, with North America accounting for 25 percent of that total followed by China’s 20-plus percent.

If diversity and gender equality have so much potential for improving business, why don’t we see more of it faster? What will be necessary to make it happen?

There are several kinds of responses to this question. The first is the “do it yourself” response, characterized by Sheryl Sandberg’s now-famous argument in her book, Lean In. Among other things, she challenges women to change their behaviors, to bolster their self-confidence and ambition, and become better job and wage negotiators while choosing a partner who can help share the load of a career.

Meet The Boss Of The Future

Meet The Boss Of The Future | Women in Business | Scoop.it

We work in an ever-changing, hyperconnected, world-scattered workplace. As the way we work changes, so too will the boss's role need to shift to meet those demands.

 

Take, for example, the very makeup of the U.S. workforce. One in every three Americans is a freelancer of some sort, according to a 2014 survey by Freelancers Union and Elance. This includes independent contractors, moonlighters, people working temporary or multiple jobs, and freelance business owners. Many expect this figure will increase to up to 50% by 2020, filling half the workforce with free agents.

The power is shifting, and what it means to be a great boss is taking a dramatic turn.

John Norman's curator insight, May 20, 2015 7:49 PM

With the ever increasing speed and spread of global communications the dynamic boss of the future will need to develop better communications skills if they are to stay connected with their staff. None of this technologies can ever fully replace the warmth of face to face meeting. We are a social animal but bosses will need to improve the feeling of connectedness with their staff as more and more work remotely.
