Networking . . . just mentioning it can illicit many different negative responses including fear, anxiety or stress. I know that it is “good” for me and that it is the “right” thing to do for both my personal and professional development. Of course, that makes it sound more like exercise than anything else. And like exercise, you can’t just do it occasionally and expect meaningful results. It takes practice, learning and even failure at times to figure out what works for you. It also includes finding common ground with others to successfully network in the first place.
