The Get Wired card deck contains a set of natural yet powerful activities to strengthen your network. These 50 best practices in classic and social media networking help you connect with – and add value to – the people in your world.

In my nearly two decades of executive coaching, I have learned that when it comes to “networking,” people would rather not. And yet, being networked – being wired to the people in your world – is a key ingredient in any plan to advance your professional and personal brand. The Get Wired card deck is a development tool that draws upon the science of networking and the best practices of leadership to help you become wired, known, and appreciated for who you are.

Here are some misconceptions of networking and how the Get Wired approach turns them on their head.

  • In order to network, I can’t be myself.
Get Wired helps you network comfortably, with no unnatural acts. Each activity in the card deck is designed to fit a range of styles and approaches – you will find yours among them. You don’t have to pretend to be outgoing when you’re an introvert; pretend to be interested in a topic that bores you to tears; or fear you are imposing on the good nature of others by asking for help.

Get Wired helps you catch yourself at authentic networking – you’re already doing it! By choosing the activities in the card deck best suited to you, you will learn how to push yourself out of your comfort zone and build your network, while remaining true to who you are and how you do things.
  • Networking is a short-term tactic that’s about asking for something for myself. I feel selfish.

If you haven’t communicated proactively with your existing network in a while, naturally it will be tough to start “networking” just because you need something now: a job, a reference, a favor. Networking is not a short-term, hold-your-nose-and-dive-in play to get what you want. Networking is give and take. This card deck has reciprocity built into it.

With Get Wired, we help you refresh your network long before you need to tap it for something. In fact, when you’re wired, your acts of networking become as much about others as they are about you. Get Wired helps you be wired over time so that your networking is not saved up for those special occasions when you need something. With Get Wired, you become an everyday networker and your network simply becomes an extension of how you get things done.
  • Networking is strategic. It’s part of a set of standards for leadership that you need to hold yourself and others accountable to. It becomes woven into the fabric of who you are and how you get things done.
I have so much on my plate already, who has time for networking?

When you’re wired into your network, it actually saves you time and does the heavy lifting for you. Think of your network as a system of routes and highways and back roads that you lay down between yourself and others – short cuts to finding the solutions you seek when you seek them and empowering others to find the same in you.

In summary, Get Wired is the process of refreshing your connections to your current network; engaging authentically with it; standing out for who you are; deepening and growing your network connections, and stretching yourself – challenging yourself to be your networked best.
