What is your interacting with others hurdle #4?
Whatever network I have at work is comprised mostly of colleagues from my functional area (i.e. I am in marketing and everyone in my network is from marketing).
What can you do?
– Create a list of colleagues outside of your functional area with whom you should raise your visibility if your network is comprised solely of colleagues from your functional area.
– Ask a colleague if her network expands beyond her functional area and how she went about building such a network.
– Speak with your manager about volunteering for a project or committee outside of your functional area. This is a great way to meet colleagues outside of your functional area with whom you will share a common goal.
