Networking for Introverts (and  other people who’d rather go deep than wide)

Monday, October 23 at 9:30 a.m.

Do you want to become a more effective networker? Could you use some help to overcome fears and communicate more clearly? Join Career and Leadership Coach Amy Kay Watson as she leads an interactive mini-workshop to help you gain confidence and effectiveness in one-on-one networking.

You will leave the session equipped with tools to:
* Overcome fears and take the first step to become a better networker
* Learn a simple and elegant strategy for persuading others to help you (without feeling like you have persuaded them to do anything)
* Adapt your conversational strategy to fit where you are in your networking plan
Amy founded Career Leadership Alignment to coach leaders and career transitioners to greater effectiveness by helping them listen to themselves.  “I understand the hunger to be heard and understood, and I believe the creativity and answers you need are within you.  I also believe that modern society keeps us so busy, stressed, and distracted that we have forgotten the sound of our inner voice of wisdom.  I’m here to help you find that inner voice again so you can learn from it.”
