Join us as we have an awesome conversation concerning the importance of teaching kids about the power of connecting with others - networking. One of the awesome takeaways is that the teaching of networking needs to go beyond the skills and actually focus on helping the students find and become part of networks that they may have very little or no access to without help.
Who You Know: Unlocking Innovations That Expand Students’ Networks is an excellent read that will make you want to start counting the ways that you can integrate networking into your daily plans. This was an awesome talk that opened my eyes to a very real need.
Thanks for listening and sharing!
