The action plan

The universe

You should now feel confident that you can identify what you need to do (and hopefully be doing it) to:

  • Build your own network
  • Create value for others within your network

Without Action, you will not change – and lessons learned through reflection, feedback and learning will have limited effect on your success.

Consider, record and commit:

  1. What were the key things I have learned about my own networks?
  2. What can I do to build and expand my personal and professional networks?
  3. What do I want to change about my current approach?
  4. What will I do to change?
  5. What do I need to put in place to ensure that this change sticks?
  6. When and how will I check in with myself to ensure I am on target to achieve this change?
  7. Who can I enlist to help me keep on track?
