When people think of networks and networking in a professional context, they tend to think about conversations with strangers, exchanging business cards and adding connections on LinkedIn.
We argue there is more value in focusing on a few important people who can truly help you succeed, and investing time in those relationships. We call that small group of people your Personal Boardroom.
That’s why we suggest there are only six to twelve people in your Personal Boardroom. Investing time wisely with them means you can spend less time networking, and more time getting on with your job.
