Networking is often considered a necessary evil for working professionals. With social media platforms like LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook, reaching potential investors or employers is much easier. Yet, these connections often feel transactional, agenda-driven, and dehumanizing, leaving professionals feeling burnt out and stressed out.
Instead, we should connect on a human level and build authentic relationships beyond securing a new job or a new investor for your next big idea––this is especially key as people head back to the workplace after a year of isolation. In The Lost Art of Connecting, “serial connector” and communications expert Susan McPherson offers a simple, three-step methodology to help people go back to basics, tap into our humanity, and learn to be more intentional and authentic.
With helpful tips and useful advice on making the most of every step, The Lost Art of Connecting is the handbook we all need to foster personal and professional relationships that blur the lines between work and play––and enrich our lives in every way.
