Bring Your Networking to the Next Level

Everyone needs to network. It is the way professionals build vital connections with people who ultimately become friends, clients, colleagues or sources of inspiration.

My new book, Strategic Networking for Introverts, Extroverts, and Everyone in Between shows you, step by step, how to use networking to realize your goals.

  • The book draws upon my experience as an introvert who learned to network effectively in order to build a successful consulting business.
  • After twenty-five years of business development coaching, I understand why people run into problems that interfere with effective networking.
  • Best practices derived from interviews with three dozen professionals who excel at networking ─ attorneys, finance professionals and industry leaders ─ illustrate the rewards of networking strategically.

What reviewers say

  • “This book is a must read. It reinforces that good networking is about giving, not taking, and that effective networking is a strategy that can be learned.”

  • “Carol’s book should be the starting point for anyone looking to grow their business or career through networking. (Hint - that includes you, because it includes everyone!)”

  • “Carol’s done you the favor of putting everything you need to know in this great, readable volume.”

  • “Whether you are a veteran professional, new lawyer, or professional services provider, this book will enable you to focus on your goals and hone your skills.”

Networking Can Be Learned

I know that any professional ─ introvert, ambivert, extrovert ─ can find his or her own authentic networking style. I am not a natural networker; I am an introvert who networks. I work in an industry where, in order to succeed, I need to interact with a wide group of people, some of whom I know well and many I don’t know at all. I learned to network successfully by creating a comfortable process for myself.
