OUR WEEKLY 
NETWORKING TIPS


You May Be a Compulsive Networker If...

Forbes.com recently pinpointed warning signs of when you may be a "compulsive networker" -- those who may be addicted to connecting with others but fail to have much to show for their efforts because they don't focus on making deeper bonds with others and just collect business cards. 
 
Some of the warning signs: 
 
Feel happy when the number of connections rises on social media
"Some people are looking for validation and recognition," says an addiction psychiatrist. "It may be partly a self-esteem issue that gets gratified by numbers."
 
Say 'yes' indiscriminately to events
If you're going places all the time and not digging deep, you're likely spreading yourself too thin. A more goal-oriented, targeted approach will be better (and healthier) in the long run.
 
Hand out business cards all the time
"I've seen people give out their cards like mints," the Forbes.com article continues. "But if you don't have meaningful conversations, it's a waste."
 
Meet someone and immediately wonder how they can help you
"People that have agenda-based relationships size people up based on what they can do for them," says a psychiatrist and assistant clinical professor at UCLA. "Savvy people will probably see through it, and you may lose the relationship." What's more, those who leave a conversation as soon as you realize the other person can't help you may be a compulsive networker too. A networking expert says she once saw someone start a conversation, leave when they realized the person couldn't help and then return to ask for her card back. Check your motivations. There's usually something to learn from everyone.
 
Rarely follow up with new "connections"
If you leave a party with a stack of business cards but can't remember what you talked about, it will be hard to maintain the relationship. Many people put too much effort in the initial connection and fail to properly invest in the maintenance of their networks.
 
Fall into autopilot mode
In auto-pilot mode, you're not building a true business relationship but you're networking for personal gratification or to combat loneliness, It robs us of our ability to foster true inter-personal relationships. 
 
Constantly updating your social media
Are you constantly updating your social media status or checking to see if anyone has responded? "These are often one-way interactions that may rob you of your sanity," the Forbes.com article notes. 
 
Overly focused on quantity of connections
Goals to grow your number of connections rather than their quality may be misguided."There’s an upper limit to the number of connections you can maintain of around 150 people," "In whatever format, more than that and the relationships are impersonal and the connections are weak."
 
Connect to brands rather than people
Many get excited when they connect with someone with a high-status brand affiliation, believing themselves to then be a part of that high-status group. The experts warn that it's superficial, easy to spot and can alienate people.
