Power Connecting (Networking) for Introverts

Posted By: Judy Robinett

Recently Susan Roane, author of How to Work a Room, contacted me when she heard about my forthcoming book on how to be a power connector. We had a great conversation in which she told me that the number one question people ask is, "I'm shy — how do I network?"

Most psychologists agree that anywhere from 30 to 50 percent of people in the US can be classified as introverts. I too used to be part of that group: growing up I was a tall, awkward girl who did her best to shrink into the background in every social situation. But there's something interesting about many of us introverts: because we don't talk a lot, we are often very observant. We watch what people do and how they interact.

Girish* is a client of mine who runs a 500-million-dollar business. He gets stellar reviews and is seen as a high potential successor to the CEO.

But he has a friend problem.

Several of his direct reports are close friends and he doesn't hold them accountable in the same way he does his other direct reports. Often, they don't do what he asks. And they aren't delivering the results he expects. It's hurting his business and his reputation.

Tomorrow is Independence Day, and as I reflect upon what that means, I came up with freedom to live as one wishes, opportunity, fairness and equality for all. These ideals and the men and women who sacrificed to provide them to all of us is precious to Americans.

By now, the school year has ended for millions of children across the country. Having been a student for over 20 years myself, and having two sons who were in school for over 20 years, for most of my life I've viewed June as a "year-end month," a sentiment that many Americans also hold
