TrainingZONE Newswire #349 – Secrets of a successful networker


TrainingZONE Newswire - Issue 349
14 March 2005

1. Feature: Network Success
2. Parkin Space: A New Paradigm for Learning
3. The Way I See It... Are we Creating a Workforce of Drifters?
4. IIP Champions Case Study: St Mary Magdalene School
5. Women Make 'Better Leaders'

Editor's note
As one study identified gaps in top management skills this week,
another found the untapped talent to bridge that gap - women.
Research, by the Centre for High Performance Development,
identified the characteristics of leadership and found that
while women are more likely to possess these skills, men are
more likely to make it to the boardroom. One of the main reasons
for this apparent anomaly is the art of self-promotion. Call it
office politics, marketing or networking, those who achieve
success are apparently more likely to have mastered this skill.
For some fantastic tips on how to boost networking abilities,
don't miss Sandra Beale's article on this very subject:

Kind regards
