Managers and executives are busier than ever, and networking can sometimes feel like an added task on your calendar. However, finding the right networking opportunities serves an important role in your career and for the growth of your business. When you are a leader, it can be difficult to find a mentor or someone to brainstorm ideas with. A challenge many leaders face is finding others with shared experiences that can provide professional and career insight. Collaborating with peers connects you with individuals who share similar responsibilities and can offer advice or guidance. Additionally, making connections creates opportunities to give back to the industry, to mentor and to support fellow leaders.
