NETWORKING WITH PLEASURE AND RESULTS

One of the building blocks for a successful and happy career is the ability to tap into your network for advice, information, feedback, support.
Men and women seem to use networking differently as a career tool. Women tend to spend less time developing their internal and external networks. Partly because they don’t see the added value and are hesitant about the time investment. Partly because they think networking is an unfair way of getting what you want. Partly because they find it scary to get involved in networks without knowing anybody.


This workshop inspires women to start developing their internal and external networks. We focus on changing the mindset about networking (thinking about it as a ‘win’ instead of a threat) and on practicing and experiencing the power of networking in the here-and-now.


Elements of the workshop include:

  • Networking = working
  • Added value for you, your team and company
  • Gender differences in networking

We will focus on how to get the most out of your networking activities, with special attention to the challenges you face and the assets you already have.
To conclude this very practical and hands-on afternoon, we will practice together during a networking event. This is a new and effective way to test your elevator pitch, to walk up to a group to start a conversation, to step into a conversation, to get to know new people... and to make networking FUN! 
All our trainings are given in a coaching way, with special attention to every individual participant. We encourage experience sharing and coaching behavior such as giving open and honest feedback. This is why we prefer to work with small teams.
