For a lot of people networking can be a nightmare: they consider it as something difficult, time-consuming, somehow dirty, self-serving or even worse.

I have to say that I totally disagree. I see networking as something funny, inspiring, useful for both sides and easy to do.
How? By believing that your life is made of people and the more interesting people you know and help, the better for you and for them.

In my opinion, networking is all about sharing: sharing knowledge, sharing ideas, sharing tipps, sharing motivation, sharing suggestions, sharing know-how, sharing contacts, sharing experiences. 

Networking is about spending time with people who can help you and whom you can help out. It is about making your life and their life better because of it. It is definitely about giving them something that they don't know/have and you do and about getting support and ideas from them.

Are you still not sure that networking is a good thing for you? 
Here you have five easy tips about networking, to start enjoying it:

#1. Believe that you are a wonderful person and that you can add value to the life of others. Never doubt it.
#2. Go out and smile. Be happy when you meet a new person. Every person is a chance to enrich your life.
#3. Focus on the beautiful character quirks of each person and don't judge them. You don't know how walking in their shoes feels like.
#4. When you say "I would be glad to follow up" mean it. And do it: follow up.
#5. Introduce interesting people you know to other interesting people you know. This way you will make their life more rich and valuable.

Are you ready to network now?

Für viele Leute ist die Beziehungspflege via Networking ein Horrorszenario: Sie nehmen sie als etwas Schwieriges, Zeitaufwendiges, irgendwie Dreckiges, Egoistisches oder sogar noch Schlimmeres wahr.

Ich muss sagen, dass ich überhaupt nicht einverstanden bin. Für mich ist das Networking etwas Lustiges, Inspirierendes, beidseitig Nützliches und Einfaches.
Wie? Indem man überzeugt ist, dass das Leben aus Leuten besteht und dass je interessanter die Leute sind, die man kennt und denen man hilft, desto besser ist es für einen selbst und für die Anderen.

Meiner Meinung nach, geht es im Networking um das Mitteilen: Wissen mitteilen, Ideen mitteilen, Tipps mitteilen, Motivation mitteilen, Voschläge mitteilen, Fachwissen mitteilen, Kontakte mitteilen, Erfahrungen mitteilen. 

Networking bedeutet, dass man Zeit mit Leuten verbringt, denen man hilft und die hilfreich sein können. Es bedeutet, dass man sein Leben und deren Leben auf diese Weise verbessert. Es bedeutet auf jeden Fall, dass man den Leuten etwas gibt, das man kann/hat und das sie nicht können/haben, und dass man Unterstützung und Ideen von ihnen zurück bekommt.

Seid Ihr immer noch nicht sicher, dass Networking etwas Gutes für Euch ist? 
Hier sind fünf einfache Tipps für das Networking, damit Ihr es geniessen könnt:

#1. Glaubt daran, dass Ihr ein wunderbarer Mensch seid und dass Ihr einen Mehrwert im Leben von Anderen schaffen könnt. Seid nie im Zweifel.
#2. Geht raus und lächelt. Seid froh, wenn Ihr jemanden Neuen kennenlernt. Jede neue Person bedeutet eine Chance Euer Leben reicher machen zu können.
#3. Konzentriert Euch auf die guten Seiten der Persönlichkeit von jedem. Beurteilt die Leute nicht: Ihr habt keine Ahnung, wie man in den Schuhen der Anderen geht.
#4. Wenn Ihr sagt "Ich würde gern im Kontakt bleiben und mich melden" meint das wirklich. Und tut es tatsächlich: Meldet Euch bei den Leuten.
#5. Stellt interessante Leute, die Ihr kennt, anderen interessanten Leuten, die Ihr kennt, vor. Dadurch werdet Ihr deren Leben reicher und wertvoller machen.

Seid Ihr nun bereit, neue Leute kennen zu lernen? 
Habe ich etwas vergessen?

P.S. Der neue Blogpost über "Der kleine Prinz" ist am nächsten Montag online!

Per molte persone fare networking può essere alla stregua di un incubo: la considerano una attività difficile, dispendiosa in termini di tempo, in qualche modo sporca, incentrata su se stessi e via imprecando.

Devo ammettere che io non sono per niente d'accordo. Considero il fare networking una fonte di divertimento e inspirazione, utile per entrambe le parti, facile.
Ma come? Grazie alla convinzione che la vita di ognuno è fatta di persone e più interessanti sono le persone che conoscete e aiutate, meglio sarà per voi e per loro.

Considero il networking come un puro atto di condivisione: condivisione di conoscenze, condivisione di idee, condivisione di proposte, condivisione di motivazione, condivisione di consigli, condivisione di know-how, condivisione di contatti, condivisione di esperienze.

Networking significa trascorrere del tempo con persone che possono aiutarvi e che voi potete aiutare. Significa rendere la vostra vita e la loro vita migliore. Significa sicuramente donare agli altri qualcosa che non hanno/sanno e che voi avete/sapete e ricevere da loro idee e sostegno in cambio.

Siete ancora dubbiosi sul fatto che il fare networking sia una buona idea per voi?
Ecco cinque dritte facili facili in tema networking, che vi aiuteranno ad apprezzarlo:

#1. Siate sicuri del fatto che siete delle persone meravigliose e che potete arricchire la vita degli altri. Non dubitatene mai.
#2. Uscite e sorridete. Siate felici ogni volta che conoscete qualcuno. Ogni nuova conoscenza rappresenta una chance per migliorare la vostra vita.
#3. Concentratevi sui lati positivi del carattere di ognuno e non giudicate gli altri: non potete sapere cosa si prova a essere nei loro panni.
#4. Quando dite "Mi piacerebbe rimanere in contatto" pensatelo davvero. E fatelo: rimanete in contatto con le persone.
#5. Presentate persone interessanti che conoscete ad altre persone interessanti che conoscete. In questo modo renderete la loro vita più ricca e godibile.

Ora siete pronti a buttarvi nel networking?
Ho dimenticato qualcosa?
