As we approach the holiday season and, generally, when work begins to slow, now is the time to polish up on your networking skills. Yes, I know, dreaded networking. Going into a room filled with half-to-full strangers with hopes to do a few name drops to garner a new prospective client or referral source, right? It doesn’t have to be that way. There are several ways to get out of the drag of networking. Like many of you, I am terrible at breaking the ice at networking events. Recently, I stumbled upon an article by Jamie Kravitz for Business Insider entitled “8 networking tips for people who hate networking.” Kravitz does an excellent job of turning networking on its head and adding value to your networking game. Next time you are approached with the task of entering a room of unknowns to grow your business network, take a look at the tips included in the article and see how many you can implement.
