This is the first post of a series of video blogs I’ll be doing on networking faux pas. The faux pas I talk about in this video is what I call “abusing the relationship.” I tell the story of a woman who used her relationship with another networker in a way that was very wrong and even somewhat deceptive.
Over the next couple of months, I’m going to do videos from time to time on some of the most egregious faux pas I’ve seen over the years when it comes to networking.
I’d love to hear your reaction to this first faux pas–how would you handle it if someone from your networking group invited you into a similar situation? Would you feel comfortable referring them to others in your network in the future after the incident? Please share your thoughts in the comment forum below. Thanks!
