Are you an Expansionist, a Broker, or a Convener? Understanding the contours of your social network can dramatically enhance personal relationships, work life, and even your global impact.
Conventional wisdom would have us believe that it is the size of your network that matters: how many people do you know? We’re told to mix, mingle, and connect. But social science research suggests otherwise.
This talk by Yale Professor Marissa King will utterly transform the way you think about ‘networking.’
The quality and structure of our relationships have far greater impact on our personal and professional lives. our relationships with friends, family, co-workers, neighbours, and collaborators are by far our greatest asset. Yet, most people leave them to chance.
In this talk, Marissa King, Professor of Organizational Behaviour at the Yale, argues that there are strategic ways in which we can alter our relationships for a happier and more fulfilling life. With new understanding, she will help you to see how to harness the power of your networks in your personal relationships, at work, and to create a better world.
