Publisher's Summary

Today's organizations are collaborative. With old command-and-control methods replaced by openness and transparency, networking has become an essential professional skill expected of everyone at every level.

Unveiling eight indispensable competencies for the new network-oriented workforce, Strategic Connections provides practical advice for building better, more productive business relationships. Listeners will discover how to:

  • Commit to a positive, proactive networking mind-set
  • Align networking activities with individual and organizational objectives
  • Leverage their contacts by organizing them into strategic groups
  • Earn trust--a prerequisite for collaboration
  • Boost their social acumen and increase their likeability
  • Master conversational skills and deepen interactions
  • Employ storytelling to make communications memorable
  • Use networking to deliver value to the company

Thanks to technology new contacts are only a click away. But the level of connection and collaboration required for real success demands advanced, face-to-face relationship-building skills. This audiobook gives you the tools you need to meet goals, execute strategies, foster innovation, and make yourself invaluable to your organization.

    "Couldn't stand narrator's whispered voice"
    What disappointed you about Strategic Connections?

    I only got to chapter 3, but the content sounded too general and a bit outdated. It didn't seem to deliver the title, presenting old fashioned formulas of networking.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Why can't the narrator speak like a normal human being instead of whispering the end of each word? It sounds utterly artificial, fake, trying too hard to impress. Tone/pace are also weird, like an American trying to sound British or vice-versa. Performance is so over the top that completely turned me off.
