Video: Finding It Hard to Relate & Connect When Networking with Shy People? 06/07/12
A couple weeks back, I posted a video featuring top tips on overcoming your own shyness when networking. The video featured a good friend of mine, Tara Schmakel, who is an expert on overcoming shyness as she herself was once very shy and is now known as “The Once Timid Networker.”
If you view yourself as being the definition of a gregarious extrovert, chances are that you noticed the video blog post and didn’t pay much attention because you thought the topic of timid networkers didn’t really apply to you. However, there’s an aspect of the topic you may not be thinking about–even if you’re not shy yourself, if you don’t know how to effectively connect with other networkers who are on the timid side then you really aren’t an effective networker.
This is why I’m posting today’s video which features Tara and offers important insights into how to network and make connections with other networkers who are much more introverted and shy than you are.
This is definitely one video worth watching–Tara offers some extremely valuable advice on how to effectively connect with timid networkers and, I’ll admit, she taught me a few very important things that never even occurred to me before about what to do and what not to do when it comes to gestures and approach.
After watching the video, I highly encourage you to check out more of Tara’s content by visiting her website: www.TheOnceTimidNetworker.com.
