Join us for a networking workshop that will help conquer your fears and spark your curiosity!
A global survey of nearly 16,000 LinkedIn users revealed that while nearly 80 percent of professionals consider networking crucial to business success, almost 40 percent admit that they find it hard to do.
Networking isn’t about selling or pitching, it’s about making true and purposeful connections with people and building reciprocal relationships.
During this micro-skill session, focused on doing, not telling – we’ll take the pressure off you and what you ‘need’ to or should’ say, negate the fear of small talk and build trustworthiness by getting curious. Gain new skills and become confident with networking, learning tips and trips and learn how to approach new connections with ease.
What we’ll do
20% micro-skill learning: We’ll zoom in on the most underestimated ingredient of trustworthiness and what it means for how we connect with others
80% practice: You’ll get to have conversations completely focused on short-cutting the path to trustworthiness
