Superconnector: Stop Networking and Start Building Business Relationships that Matter

February 27, 2018
Superconnector is an essential read for business people who want to harness the power of community to excel in their career.
About This Book:
Superconnectors are a new category of tradespeople born out of the social media era.
They are highly valuable community-builders who make things happen through their keen understanding and utilization of social capital. They don’t just meet people for business-card collection’s sake; they understand the power of relationship-building, problem-solve by connecting the dots at high levels, and purposefully cause different worlds and communities to interact with the intention of creating mutual value.
Superconnector shows readers why it’s time to leave their bad networking habits in favor of a new three-pronged Vision-Execution-Profiting approach. It presents instructive anecdotes and winning strategies from a who’s who roster of superconnectors, revealing how to systematically manage a meaningful professional community and maximize its value.
