Since I started business school a year ago there is a myriad of networking events going on around me every month, and I just could not get myself to go to these events despite the pressure from peers, professors and others. No doubt, there is a lot of pressure today, especially in the business community, to network.  So finally, I decided to attend a workshop about networking given by Darcy Rezac because I wanted to settle this issue for myself for good. And I told my self that after this event I will either start networking effectively or I will decide that networking is truly not for me and stop doing it altogether. I went on the day of the workshop and he started by asking a question. “How many people attach a pejorative sense to networking?” and I was probably the first person to raise my hand. He points at me asks me “Why do you think so?” So I gave an answer that Mr. Rezac confirmed was not unique. I said, “Networking implies using human relations for very materialistic ends and I don’t like that”.

 

After sitting there for two hours I developed a completely new view of networking; a view that is positive, constructive and that I can share with a lot of other people who either dread or otherwise hate networking. Please read on to know what networking is really about.

On March 4th 2008, while in Capetown, I organized a conference onboard the Scholar Ship with EDUCO to learn about their South African experience of leadership. Until now I had never realized how the “ideal leader” is something that changes depending on different countries. The ideas presented here are meant to contrast the American vision of leadership with the perspective I've been presented with from my trip to South Africa, with interactions with locals, EDUCO and the Western Cape Business Opportunities Forum.
