Having discussed in the previous chapter how to effectively present your short form to others, this chapter focuses on the environments in which you may need to. Which is to say, it’s about networking. Networking, the author says, remains an unavoidable necessity for executives looking to get ahead, but it is perhaps not exactly the nightmare people imagine it to be. Drawing on advice from David Burkus, author of a bestselling book on networking, the reader is presented with a strategy for how to make networking less uncomfortable and more effective. The chapter then moves on from merely getting used to networking to how to do it better than most. Strategies focus on how to get known, how to widen your circle, and how to become respectable. The chapter concludes with a recommendation to return to education throughout your career, because it will introduce you to new people, but most importantly, new thinking.
