More than ever, building relationships that matter is key to your career success. While networking has always been something you “should” do, more and more professionals find that networking is essential to helping them meet new people, being an excellent connection resource, and learn how to be a giver when it comes to these relationships.
Rebecca Otis Leder is the author of KNOCK - How to Open Doors and Build Career Relationships that Matter. It’s a fantastic book and an easy read to help you identify and build these types of business relationships as you create Your Mid-Career GPS. Rebecca’s KNOCK Method focuses on five fundamental principles:
· Know My Topic and My Contact
· Not About Me
· Own It
· Keep Giving
