Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Praise from the Publisher

"Nothing is more important to the leader of the future than networking. The Connect Effect explains what you need to do and how to do it!"
-- Marshall Goldsmith, author of the Wall Street Journal #1 bestselling business book, What Got You Here Won't Get You There

"The Connect Effect is a practical and informative guide to helping people (and organizations) improve their networks, reach their potential, and achieve great things."
--Lynda Gratton, Professor of Management, London Business School, and author of Hot Spots

"From both a corporate and an individual perspective, building strong productive networks is mission critical. The Connect Effect is a practical guide to how we become better at the art and science of networking and how we use that to propel our businesses and our careers."
--Lynne Bartusek, Vice President, Associate Recruitment, Inclusion and Diversity, JCPenney

"As leaders and individuals work, and live, more globally every day, technology may make connecting easier, but it is the quality of the connection that is the key differentiator. The Connect Effect is a vital resource to today's leaders, advising them on tried-and-true tactics, techniques, and tools for creating connections that last."
--Leslie W. Joyce, PhD, Vice President and Chief Learning Officer, The Home Depot

"Mike Dulworth provides the keys to networking in our fast-moving global society. His invaluable experience and advice can help novices and successful networkers achieve their optimum networking quotient and enhance their opportunities for personal and professional success."
--Thurgood Marshall, Jr., Partner, Bingham McCutchen LLP, Former Assistant to President Clinton and Cabinet Secretary, 1997-2001

"What really distinguishes high performers from the rest of the pack is their ability to maintain and leverage personal networks. The most effective create and tap large, diversified networks that are rich in experience and span all organizational boundaries. The Connect Effect is a practical, advice-filled, engaging book that will help its readers make significant improvements in their own networks' effectiveness."
-- Rob Cross, Assistant Professor, McIntire School of Business, University of Virginia, and coauthor of The Hidden Power of Social Networks

Format: Hardcover
I must say that I found this book very insightful. I thought I had a well-developed network, but now realize that with a little more effort and a better approach I can leverage my network for both professional and personal growth. This book was a great read and it will definitely be a good resource for me going forward.

Mike Dulworth reiterates what we all seem to know and still forget or neglect so often: Success is closely linked to knowing people and most importantly staying in touch with them as well as being of service to them.
Mike goes beyond describing and recognizing the tremendous effects of a network, he provides simple and effective tools to implement the few key steps to build and maintain my own network. I particularly liked the idea of the Personal Board of Directors, which at its core is nothing more than a formal request for permission to ask for advice. I personally implemented this tool right away and with minimal effort. After a few short weeks I already enjoy positive results.

The Connect Effect is a wonderful book for anyone who wants to learn more about networking, both for empowering your career and your life as a whole. Michael Dulworth shows us that an authentic network is an effective network, and he not only outlines ways of strengthening our connections, but also gives us strategies for exploring—and deepening—our own skills.

Mike Dulworth surprised me with his refreshing and expanded ideas about networking. This is not a "how-to" book, but rather a book which opens up the possibility of all kinds of networking opportunities. Have you thought lately about peer-to-peer networks, network accelerators, or PBODs? (Personal Boards of Directors.) What I learned in this book will keep me busy for years.
