Instead of asking people you meet to help with your career or business, what if you asked what you can do for them? That shift is key to building connections that not only support your success but bring more meaning to your life--something we’re all looking for more than ever. Susan McPherson has put all she’s learned as a serial connector and social impact leader into the three-step formula described in her new book, The Lost Art of Connecting. Founder and CEO of McPherson Strategies, a communications consultancy focused on social impact, Susan has advice for introverts and extroverts alike on using technology wisely, being intentional about building community, identifying what you can offer to others, learning how to listen, connecting with people outside your bubble, and following-up gracefully after meeting new people. You’ll never dread networking again.
