How Your Network Can Change Your Life (ft. David Burkus) | Ep. 43

If you've ever felt weird, awkward, or inauthentic at networking events or conferences, you can trust that you're not alone. In fact, you're probably in the majority. 


So, now that we know the problem, how might we go about solving for the lack of continuity and consistency in finding deep relationships? 


In an effort to shed some light, we're joined this week by bestselling author, TED talk speaker, and professor, David Burkus. His most recent book--FRIEND OF A FRIEND: UNDERSTANDING THE HIDDEN NETWORKS THAT CAN TRANSFORM YOUR WORK AND LIFE--he takes a scientific approach to breaking down the primitive and modern aspects of human networks. 


Some of the questions we touch on include: 

  • Which areas of your network provide the best source of new ideas and insights
  • Where the potential blind spots and weak points in your network are
  • How to foster authentic, collaborative relationships
  • How to effectively grow and strengthen your network


Also, you can keep up with Dave's work and purchase his book at the links below.
