the Power of Positive Networking to Leap Forward in Work and Life 

Call it networking, relationship-building or creating new connections.
These are essential business and life skills, but the reality is that
most people don't like doing it. Entering a room full of strangers,
making small-talk with people you don't know, even handing out business
cards, requires us to step out of our comfort zones. Then there is the
time commitment. Most people would much rather be back at the office
doing something more "productive." 

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). Their 'what
can I do for you' approach to networking is key to building strong and
lasting relationships. But there is a bonus to becoming a Positive

thousands to overcome their fear of networking, build better
relationships and find more success. From novice networker to seasoned
executive, everyone will be inspired to get out and network more. So,
roll up your sleeves, step out of your comfort zone and learn the
philosophy of Positive Networking(TM) and the key steps and secrets of
