On this episode of Honest HR, Erich Kurschat is back! He and Callie continue their conversation on communication and the all too relatable struggle of networking. Networking is hard, and not everyone likes it. But it can be both enjoyable and fruitful. For Erich, that meant reframing what success looked like in a way that was genuine and authentic to his personality style.
Listen in as two self-described introverts discuss shifting your perspective on the uncomfortable world of networking, to focusing on the value of connecting with people in a way that's natural (and maybe even a little fun!).
Key episode takeaway: "Anytime you're going to make a connection with someone, whether it's face to face or in some virtual capacity, it's more meaningful if you provide some sort of context."
