Pro-active networking

Active networking and connecting with peers is one of the essentials in knowledge management,
as the platform for the exchange of tacit knowledge.  To do what we preach, together with Steven Warmoes,
a SuperCoP (Community of Practice) was formed for knowledge management professionals (Belgium based).
We have a virtual office, where we share documents and have discussion forums, on top of that, we regularly
organise a physical meeting.
Last Thursday, we invited Hendrik Deckers for a workshop on pro-active networking.  Although I am  a good
networker, it was an eye-opener to realize the full potential.
Two aspects of networking became clear to me :
 – be aware of your network
 – use it … we tend not to ask our network for help … this is wrong, people really want to help each other
 
A must do for everybody.
