I had been going to write another piece about the person who insulted a guest and embarrassed his potential project colleagues, but it occurred to me that I could not do better than refer to my friend Penny Power’s excellent recent article Why Your Social Networking may not be working which shows how we need to move away from a closed and selfish attitude in a social networking environment and to be open and giving. It is a change which many coming out of a corporate environment are unable to make without adopting a completely different mindset. Some never do.
I was lucky enough to first meet Penny five or six years ago and whilst I am far from perfect I got a head start in better understanding the fundamentals of networking, coming on top of my initial BNI training of course. Get to know Penny. You will be pleased you have!
Read the article and enjoy.
