Utilize Networking to Build Strategic Relationships for Organizational and Career Success

Networking: Building Strategic Relationships

We’d all like to believe we’re judged solely on our work performance and what we know. If only that were enough to take our careers where we want them to go.

But the fact is, who you know and who knows you also matters.

Building strong relationships with advocates and strategic partners, both internally and externally (face to face and virtually), is a savvy career approach. This allows you to help your company meet its goals while you meet yours. It requires building a network of support within your organization, your industry and your community.
