Networking Tips for Introverts


Networking is essential for thriving in business. For introverts with a natural aversion to groups and talking with strangers, this can feel very daunting. Try these things tips to make the most of your unique style:

  • Focus on individuals. Group interactions can drain the energy of introverts. Spend networking time with one-on-one conversations.

  • Rethink how you reach out to people. Introverts are often reluctant to introduce themselves, but social media makes it more accessible. Connect with people through LinkedIn before events. This pre-introduction may make a meeting in person more comfortable.

  • Re-energize. Take time during networking events to recharge. Go for a short walk or find 15 minutes alone (make sure you return to the event).
