I am on my way to give a keynote at LinkedIn today, so I thought it was a good moment to pass on some LinkedIn-oriented material as your next preview of the exclusive resources in the myGreenlight library.
“How to Give and Get Outstanding LinkedIn Recommendations “ will help you build relationships and enhance your professional credibility.
And while we’re on the topic, did you catch the terrific article in Fortune magazine about LinkedIn founder Reid Hoffman’s forthcoming book, The Start-Up of You? In it, he proposes this action, which I’m going to call Reid’s Build-It-Before-You-Need-It Mission:
“Imagine you got laid off from your job today. Who are the 10 people you’d email for advice? Don’t wait—invest in those relationships now.”
Making that list will give you a great start on what we call a “Relationship Action Plan” in myGreenlight. Do it today – and then start reaching out!
