Devora Zack, an avowed introvert and a successful consultant who speaks to thousands of people every year, found that most networking advice books assume that to succeed you have to become an extrovert. Or at least learn how to fake it. Not at all. There is another way. This audiobook shatters stereotypes about people who dislike networking. They’re not shy or misanthropic. Rather, they tend to be reflective - they think before they talk. They focus intensely on a few things rather than broadly on a lot of things. And they need time alone to recharge. Because they’ve been told networking is all about small talk, big numbers, and constant contact, they assume it’s not for them. But it is! Zack politely examines and then smashes to tiny fragments the ´´dusty old rules” of standard networking advice. She shows how the very traits that ordinarily make people networking-averse can be harnessed to forge an approach that is just as effective as more traditional approaches, if not better. And she applies it to all kinds of situations, not just formal networking events. After all, as she says, life is just one big networking opportunity - a notion listeners can now embrace. 1.

The former Google executive, editorial director of Twitter, and self-described introvert offers networking advice for anyone who has ever cancelled a coffee date due to social anxiety - about how to nurture a vibrant circle of reliable contacts without leaving your comfort zone.Networking has garnered a reputation as a sort of necessary evil in the modern business world. Some do relish the opportunity to boldly work the room, introduce themselves to strangers, and find common career ground - but for many others, the experience is often awkward, or even terrifying.The common networking advice for introverts are variations on the theme of overcoming or ´´fixing” their quiet tendencies. But Karen Wickre is a self-described introvert who has worked in Silicon Valley for 30 years. She tells you to embrace your true nature to create sustainable connections that can be called upon for you to get - and give - career assistance, advice, introductions, and lasting connections.Karen’s ´´embrace your quiet side” approach is for anyone who finds themselves shying away from traditional networking activities, or for those who would rather be curled up with a good book on a Friday night than out at a party. For example, if you’re anxious about that big professional mixer full of people you don’t know, she advises you to consider skipping it (many of these are not productive), and instead set up an intimate, one-on-one coffee date. She tells how to truly make the most out of social media to sustain what she calls ´´the loose touch habit” to build your own brain trust to last a lifetime.With compelling arguments and creative strategies, this new way to network is perfect not only for introverts, but for anyone who wants for a less conventional approach to get ahead in today’s job market. 1.
