To be truly effective, networking should create links from people you know to people they know in an organised way and for a specific purpose. The stronger the bonds between those links, the greater the flow of resources. Executive Village
Social media and random networking are great for initiating contact but effective networks are strongly dependent on rich, durable face-to-face contact which in time develop the trust and knowledge sharing that results in a genuine sense of reciprocity so that collaboration flows freely.
|More than 50% of executives believe collaboration "will either form an important part of their firmís competitive advantage or will actually be central to its survival over the next [several] years.Ē|
