It’s not about changing who you are. It’s about capitalizing on who you are so you can be a better networker.
Believe it or not, being introverted can offer you some advantages when it comes to networking. Here are three advantages introverts have:
1. They’re good listeners.
Many introverts are great listeners. And guess what? Networking is all about listening. Truly listen to what the other person says, and ask the right questions to keep the conversation going. You’ll be just fine.
2. They can focus on quality conversations.
Many people mistakenly believe networking events are about meeting as many people as you can. While that might get you a lot of business cards, it won’t get you many meaningful relationships.
