The Power of Positive Networking(TM): Building Your Network for Work and Life
Gayle Hallgren-Rezac and Judy Thomson, authors of, WORK THE POND!

Networking is the art of building relationships--an essential skill for anyone wanting to build stronger internal networks (bonding) and meaningful networks into the community (bridging). The problem is, the majority of people don't like networking. Fifty percent of the population considers themselves shy. Most people are uncomfortable handing out business cards, walking into a room of strangers or dealing with conversational 'dead air.' They'd much rather be back at the "office" doing something more important.

Gayle Hallgren-Rezac and Judy Thomson, co-authors of, WORK THE POND! Use the Power of Positive Networking to Leap Forward in Work and Life offer a simple but powerful philosophy - Positive Networking(TM). This what-can-I-do-for-you attitude is the key to building extensive, long-lasting connections, creating social capital and enhancing personal happiness. Gayle and Judy have helped thousands overcome their fear of networking. They debunk the myths of networking and teach tips and techniques that everyone can start using immediately. So, roll up your sleeves, step out of your comfort zone and learn their trademarked seven steps of The Network Dance: N.E.T.W.O.R.K.(TM).
