The journey from dependence, to independence and on to interdependence involves firstly becoming self sufficient. I’m going to skip straight over that here and on to the interdependence part. We’re a social species and achieve so much more when we work together. When we’re in the flow it feels natural for us because it is natural for us.
Sometimes though people find it hard to get there through nervousness or feeling awkward. Calling it a stuffy sounding word like ‘networking’ doesn’t help. Learn what you are there to learn but half the beauty and benefit is from making connections. Just mingle, meet people, learn something along the way and talk about what you’re involved in. Dreams and wishes, creative ideas, current working arrangements and patterns, stumbling blocks and hurdles or one of my favorites, goals!
A great beauty of networking is stumbling across the unexpected boon. Its serendipity when it happens, a gift from the gods.
Each month I am checking on around 30 sites and organisations for Property, Business and Self Development related events to include in my local events calendar – I’ll refine it as I go. It can become quite a chore for people to constantly search for events useful to them so I’m doing the searching for South Hampshire and listing them all here on my site for anyone to browse through and find something useful. I’ll tweet each update and highlight any standouts.
Any suggestions then give me a poke.
