From the Inside Flap
"Networking." Ugh. What is it about the word that makes women squeamish? We say we dont have the time, we dont know how, or we just plain dont want to. Yet study after study has shown that interconnecting, meaningful relationships are crucial to our professional and personal success. And here we are, fabulous at forming social networks with family, friends, and even neighbors, but suddenly possessed with stage fright when it comes to building the networks we desperately need to reach our business goals.
Table Talk is not a one-size-fits-all networking book. Its specifically tailored to women and our unique concerns, obstacles, and lifestyles. With its real world tips and best friend style, Table Talk teaches women to use the skills weve got to build the relationships we need to move ahead in both work and play. It introduces a lifestyle and language about creating connections that will change the whole landscape and have everybody talking.
