A Dip in the Pond: Introduction to the Power of Positive Networking(TM)
Building Your Network for Work and Life

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

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 Networker--it's also good for your health! Gayle and Judy have taught 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 The Network Dance: N.E.T.W.O.R.K.®
