What a joy it was to be a guest on Janice Porter’s podcast Relationships Rule. She and I first “connected” more than a decade ago, but we never really got to know each other until this interview. We realized that we had so much in common. She reminded me of the power of “re-connection.”
Following this podcast interview (which was actually recorded in Nov 2022), Janice and I have a number of meaningful conversations and one particularly powerful new introduction. Janice introduced me to a fabulous young female leader named Valerie from the Navajo Nation based in Arizona. After speaking with Valerie, I offered her a scholarship to The Fearless Leader program. Now, I have the privilege of working with Valerie and helping her overcome barriers to leadership so that she can lead her nonprofit organization and her team to the next level of impact. Thanks for this important introduction Janice Porter.
Networking Tip: Rather than spending all of our time “acquiring” new connections, we should be investing more time and emerging in nurturing the relationships we already have. And that will require that you reach out and check in with people. Who needs to hear from you today? Act on the prompting and reach out today. Magical things just might happen.
