Whether you are a senior executive with decades of relevant experience in your field or a rookie who started today, you should always proactively invest in building relationships and meeting new people. Go out there, meet others, provide value, speak at events, ask questions and most importantly, listen and learn from those who may be further ahead in business, career and life.
Who you know and even more importantly, who knows YOU, will directly or indirectly impact the opportunities which will become available to you for years to come. Get out of your office and away from your desk and meet people across your organization, across your industry and across other industries and markets. Not only will you learn what you can do to help your business improve, but you will also learn what you need to do to continue improving yourself, as that is a never ending journey.
