I'm excited to have Bob Burg, co-author of The Go-Giver, on The Career Transition Experts!
In this episode, Bob shares a wealth of information and some incredible strategies to help you approach your networking efforts with an "interpreneurial" mindset. Leaders in the corporate world need to use many of the same strategies that entrepreneurs use to build their networks; they just approach them a bit differently.
Candidates often tend to approach their networking efforts with an end goal in mind - a job. While this makes sense, it also significantly limits their networking ability.
Instead, Bob teaches leaders how to approach networking with a mindset of giving immense value - of somehow making your contacts' lives better. By shifting your focus to a "Go-Give" attitude, you can set yourself apart and become someone that your networking contacts want to help.
Join Bob and Jonathan as they discuss these strategies and how they apply to your job search and career advancement. You'll learn how to influence others and learn how to attract others to yourself and your ideas by aligning your message with their needs.
You'll also learn how to ask the right questions in order to find out how to learn what those needs are, equipping you to quickly build rapport and bring your networking relationships to a higher level.
By applying Bob's advice - by approaching networking with an intention to serve and give immense value to others - you'll likely notice that your own professional goals are easier to reach as well.
You'll find this and much more in this episode! Be sure to subscribe to The Career Transition Experts so you don't miss upcoming content.
