How to Become a Connector
By Dorie Clark, a strategy consultant and professional speaker who teaches at Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business
Anyone who’s read Malcolm Gladwell’s seminal book, The Tipping Point, has wondered about connectors – how can you get more of them into your life, or even become one, yourself?
In her new book, How to Be a Power Connector, angel investor Judy Robinett shows the path. “A power connector is someone who can make things happen quickly for themselves and others,” she says. “They are often the go-to person. Their network is rich and robust with critical resources – money, information, connections, opportunities – that, when accessed, can help others achieve their personal and professional dreams.”
