PEOPLE, POWER AND POSSIBILITIES: Networking Isn't Just for Sales People

People, Power and Possibilities with Donna Fisher

Sure, networking is a vital sales tool for connecting with people to create a pipeline of sales prospects. However, everyone from executive assistant to computer analyst can utilize networking to be more effective with their work.

What if you thought of your organization as a series of interconnected networks rather than a top-down hierarchy? Imagine that you and every other individual in the company is the center of his or her own network, which interconnects with countless other individuals and their networks. The resources available throughout a corporate network provide effective ways to address issues, solve problems, create new initiatives and network with others in different departments, different locations and even different divisions.

When people relate to one another as part of the same network and work for the good of everyone and the overall business goal, then they are more likely to get together to talk through ideas, build positive relationships, share certain skills and resources, and produce powerful results.

What happens when you start to think of your company as a network of individuals rather than a hierarchy of jobs? Do you start to relate to people differently? Do you start to have different conversations geared around topics that lead to enhanced results? Do you feel more comfortable calling on others for help and support?

Networking within a company involves sharing best practices, brainstorming for great solutions and being resources throughout the corporate network. Networking is an important productivity skill for everyone!

I agree with your words. Too often people work for the same organization and function in silos.
Networking inside the organization is just important as networking outside of it.

Once people establish rapport a lot more can be accomplished.
