Connecting the right way: Kasia Mol-Wolf started her own publishing company, EMOTION Verlag, twelve years ago - and has since learned a thing or two about networking. Here are her three most important tips.
These are her three most important tips for getting started:
Tip 1: Think about what your goals are and how networks can help you achieve them. Are you specifically looking for a job? Are you looking for a business partner? Do you want to develop yourself or mainly build a large network of contacts? These questions are critical to networking effectively.
Kasia Mol-Wolf is Founder & Editorial Director of EMOTION and knows what networking is all about.
Tip 2: Once you are clear about your own goals, the next step is to consider which network can help you achieve them. For example, if you work in a male-dominated industry or company, it may make sense to join a women's network. Or maybe you're specifically looking to connect with other moms or women in top positions? Regardless of whether you are in a top or very diverse target group - there is a suitable network for almost everyone.
Tip 3: Include your private situation as well. There are networks that require a certain presence or in which members pay a very high annual fee. To ensure that no one is disappointed in the end, it makes sense to compare the network's expectations of its members with your own ideas and time constraints beforehand. As a mother of two, for example, I find it difficult to keep several professional evening appointments during the week. Networks that require this are therefore out of the question for me.
