Gurteen Knowledge Cafe session on networking
we all milled about with labels showing two things we wanted to Get and two things we wanted to Give
David references Lloyd Davis’s reflection
I guess the insight for me was that I rarely go into that sort of situation expecting to give AND to receive – I either call someone for help, and am entirely focused on my need, not expecting to have to give something in return, or else I call someone to offer help but am not open to how they might be able to help me out.
Interesting stuff and a great reminder that conversations are a two-way street and we forget it. A lof of the time, we probably don’t even think about what is it we’re trying to give and receive.
