Time estimate: 11 Minutes
Download and open your Conexus template and allow yourself 10 minutes to work through the first step of the tool: Mapping your core, inner, and outer network.
Remember network connections are on an emotional level rather than a physical level. Stronger ties are to people we trust and like, they influence us to a higher degree than weaker-tie connections. Through a relationship tie, we share information and collaborate.
For example, I might add the names of my mentors, successors, coaches, change relevant members of my family and friends to the core. I then might write down the names of close peers, directs, managers, and local influencers into my inner network and lastly, add the names of change relevant professional contacts across the organisation or industry, first degree LinkedIn connections, etc to the outer network.
Once your three network circles are completed proceed to the next three steps.
