Networking has become the single most important life skill in determining business and personal success. Your ability to be connected within your organization and with outside contacts may very well determine your next sale, promotion, or job offer. Human beings—with their distinctive personality patterns and natural talents—or temperament—are unique! In this workbook, Sarah will share her unique approach to Perfecting Connecting® through the exploration of the Keirseyan Temperament theory. Sarah will show you how your temperament plays a role in consciously creating the connections you want in every world you touch. Worksheets are provided to explore and strategize your networking and improve your connections.
