Networking for Introverts

Bust the Myths, Avoid the Awkwardness, and Weave Valuable Connections

Some of us will never enjoy walking into a room of strangers and making connections. Does that mean we’re doomed professionally? Not at all!

In this webinar, we learn about the science behind networking and how that science can help engineers, technologists, and introverts make connections successfully and strategically. We draw on insights from researchers and practitioners in the social sciences and business to learn about the networking practices of high performers. We dispel the myth that people who want strong networks should never eat alone and, instead, we learn about the simple actions that significantly contribute to the health of your network.

Participants Take Away:

  • Insight into some of the science behind networking
  • Understanding of several notorious network traps and how to escape them
  • A roster of networking practices well suited for introverts
  • A first pass analysis of individual network strengths and gaps

Cost:

  • $45 Non-members
