The Value of Networking

Sinek 10-21-13

The value of networking is not measured by the number of people we meet but by the number of people we introduce to others. — Simon Sinek

On the eve of the final day of the 2013 ESHA Annual Conference, as I thought about meaningful words to close the event, I came across this comment in Simon Sinek’s Tweeter stream. It strikes me as hitting just the right chord on the nature of generative relationships, stewardship, and colleague connections.

I had the privilege of hearing Sinek speak at a U.S. Bank event in St. Louis earlier this year. His TEDTalk at TEDxPuget Sound, “How Great Leaders Inspire Action,” is worth watching. This puts his book, Start With Why (Penguin, 2011), on my reading list!
