Lunching with Lions: Strategies for the Networking-Averse
Katherine McGraw Patterson, author
What if you'd rather jump into a cage of hungry lions wearing a meat suit than wade into a room full of strangers? We're taught networking is important, but few of us are taught to do it well. For many people, networking causes real social anxiety, discomfort, and even distress. In Lunching with Lions, the author shares the strategies she used to go from being terrified of networking to founding one of Denver's leading women's networking groups and becoming an influencer in the women's entrepreneurship community. You'll learn how to: * Use the trifecta of awareness, purpose, and intent to build a successful networking practice. * Identify the right groups and connections. * Leverage your investments of time and money to get the best results. Best of all, you'll get strategies and tools to build your networking muscle and help you overcome your fears. You don’t have to be in every group, attend every meeting, shake every hand, or collect every card. Patterson shows you how to choose the right groups and connections to help reach your personal and professional goals in a way that feels good and gets the results you want.
