Manifesto: Networking For Nice People
Networking for nice people is about connection, collaboration and community. We ask questions and actively listen. When we give, give, give, we get. We are honest, sincere and helpful. We provide mutually beneficial introductions for people who wish to connect. We build our networks before we need them. We gain respect by giving respect. We understand networking is a two-way street. We believe a rising tide lifts all boats. We gravitate towards the wallflowers and make them feel welcome. We get uncomfortable to meet and achieve our goals. We are fiscally responsible to the stakeholders in our lives. We live in the give. We spread kindness through knowledge and empathy. We balance in-person and online connections.
