Confident Presence for Networking
Wednesday, September 23, 2020, 1:15 PM - 3:15 PM MST
Category: Education

Many of us have a sense that we should be networking more than we currently are, or maybe more effectively than we currently are. It seems that most, if not all, of the most successful people we know have succeeded not just because of what they knew, but also because of who they knew, or maybe more importantly, who knew them.

So we understand that networking is important and valuable, but it’s easy to get stopped right out of the gate when we try. We get hung up around questions like, How do you start a conversation with someone you don’t know? How do you talk about yourself? and How is a networking conversation supposed to go, anyway? Sometimes you give it a try and it seems to go okay, but it’s hard to know how to measure success. Other times it can be painful. Often it’s a wash.

All of this uncertainty can add up to feelings of discomfort or awkwardness or anxiety, which tends to get in the way of doing well, and can keep us from even trying in the first place.

Confident Presence For Networking is a fun and interactive 2-hour virtual session for AEC professionals that combines instruction and practice.

Participants will walk away with:

  • A game-changing new understanding of what the challenge of networking is all about.
  • A whole new level of comfort and ability around networking.
  • An ability to lead productive networking conversations with anyone, anywhere.
  • From start to finish, this is a session designed to help us get clear on what we want when we network and what gets in our way of experiencing that, and then quickly and efficiently takes care of those barriers, replacing awkwardness with ease, uncertainty with clarity, and nerves with excitement.
