Taking the Work Out of Networking: Your Guide to Making and Keeping Great Connections

Karen Wickre

Networking has garnered a reputation as a sort of necessary evil. Some people relish the opportunity to boldly work the room, introduce themselves to strangers, and find common career ground-but for many others, the experience is awkward, or even terrifying. The common networking advice for introverts are variations on the theme of overcoming or fixing their quiet tendencies. But Karen Wickre is a self-described introvert who has worked in Silicon Valley for thirty years. She shows you how to embrace your quiet nature and make genuine connections that last, that we can nurture across the world for all kinds of purposes (Chris Anderson, head of TED). Karen’s embrace your quiet side approach is for anyone who finds themselves shying away from traditional networking activities, or for those who would rather be curled up with a good book on a Friday night than out at a party. With compelling arguments and creative strategies, this practical, easy-to-use (Sree Sreenivasan, former chief digital officer of Columbia University) book is a perfect guide. Former Google executive, editorial director of Twitter, self-described introvert, and the best-connected Silicon Valley figure you’ve never heard of (Walt Mossberg, Wall Street Journal), offers networking advice for anyone who has ever canceled a coffee date due to social anxiety. Learn to nurture a vibrant circle of reliable contacts without leaving your comfort zone.
