In episode 28 of “The Nurse Keith Show,” I share deeply about my excitement regarding my newly released book, “Savvy Networking For Nurses: Getting Connected and Staying Connected in the 21st Century.”
I really enjoyed writing this book, and I want nurses and other readers to realize how they can take their face-to-face and online networking to the next level. Networking on LinkedIn, Twitter, and Facebook are great ways to meet other nurses and savvy healthcare professionals, and understanding strategies for both in-person and online networking is crucial for creating a robust nursing career.
This book was birthed by a village of people, including my wife, Mary Rives, as well as Renee Thompson, Kevin Ross, Carol Gino, Beth Boynton, Elizabeth Scala, Susanne Kennedy from my BNI networking group in Santa Fe, and many others. It was designed and edited by two local Santa Fe professionals, Ann Lowe and Jeffrey Braucher, and the ebook was designed by Timothy Falb, another Santa Fean entrepreneur.
From “Savvy Networking For Nurses“:
Savvy Networking For Nurses was born from my desire to reach as many nurses as possible with the simple message that networking is a learned skill that we can all utilize to move our professional lives in a positive direction along a trajectory manifested through conscious intention and forward thinking.
This book offers insights and inspiration for any nurse who wants to take his or her professional networking to the next level. It will pique your curiosity, challenge you to try your hand at new skills, and cajole you to make networking a consistent, constructive, and ultimately enjoyable practice that will manifest countless benefits for your professional career and personal satisfaction.
In the highly connected 21st century, it is absolutely imperative for conscientious and intelligent professionals to understand how to build a robust professional network in the interest of their career. Networking needs to be an intrinsic part of every professional’s career-building strategy, and this pertains as much to nurses as it does to lawyers, photographers, CPAs, insurance brokers, and most any other professional you may encounter.
The book includes inspired thoughts and inspired actions to ponder and act upon, as well as several blank pages at the end for your notes and epiphanies about your networking strategy. Some of these inspired thoughts will cajole you to consider what forms of genius you embody, what people are the gold in your professional network, and how to strategize to take your networking higher and higher.
