If your efforts to network look like this, you might have a problem.
In this view of networking, people and relationships are utilitarian. They’re used and not honored. While you might achieve a level of success using this method, it dehumanizes, devalues, and dishonors people.
Networking for the sole purpose of getting something dishonors your relationships. Instead, why not value people and relationships first and let everything else flow naturally through your relationships.https://twitter.com/Abakinzie/status/192463882168696832
Work hardest on building relationships and friendships and investing in people. Let all the secondary benefits simply happen.
