Most professionals understand the importance of establishing a good network. Networks can drive performance and create influence. They are also vital to an organization as well. A strong network will improve communication between business units and enhance productivity. They can also provide unique cultural benefits, including a sense of purpose, wellbeing and identity.
Networks can provide access to unexpected information by forming ties to a diverse spectrum of unconnected individuals. Networking will require a change in the way you usually view people. This includes settings where it doesn’t look like any value can be obtained.

Baron has been a member of the Stanford faculty since 1982 and holds a PhD from the University of California Santa Barbara. Building Personal Networks will:
