Networking has turned into one of the most beneficial skills that help us do something better. Whether you’re a budding entrepreneur launching your first product, an author who wants to grow your market base, or a yuppie looking for his first gig, you know that networking is something that you will need to do. This is because finding the right people and connecting with them can bring you invariable rewards.
The thing is though, networking is not something that is easy for many of us to do, but did you know that this is only because we are approaching networking from the wrong angle?
You see, when people network, what they tend to focus on is trying to get as much as they can out of the other party. In the process, they forget that yes, there is indeed an other party, and it represents a separate set of dreams and goals that may not necessarily be similar to ours, but nevertheless deserve help as well, like we need help with our dreams and goals. So the key to becoming good at networking is not to rack up your LinkedIn network with as many names as possible, it is to understand that you have a role to play as you meet people and grow your circles.
In real life, people who have perfected this technique are called superconnectors. They are those who run around very wide social circles, know people in various fields, and do a good job of connecting all these people to each other. And if you want to know how to be one, all you need to do is show up to at least two different conventions or other events that host like-minded people, talk to the attendees, and build your networks.
