Networking and Strategy

A couple of weeks ago in my post, 'Leadership and Networking', I wrote about the lessons learned in an excellent session on 'Mastering Leadership' presented by William Montgomery of askten. A key lesson was the importance of thinking strategically.

Most of the people I meet networking do not have a strategy for their networking. The danger with this is that you can be very active and very busy but with no positive outcome. If you don't know where you are going any road will do.

William shared some simple ways of starting to think strategically;
1. Know where you want to go
2. Know where you are
3. Know what you need to do to get there
4. Take positive action

Good Networking!
