"In a world of social media, a meaningful conversation is a memorable thing. Karen Wickre reminds us that the ability to put your phone in your pocket, look a person in the eye, and really connect is not only one of life's great pleasures--it is the key to succeeding in your career."--Kim Scott, author of Radical Candor
"Karen Wickre has long been an powerful but unsung resource for tech industry insiders seeking career advice. In this charming book, she shares the powerful secrets that will allow introverts--and everyone else--to organically network in the workplace, for better jobs and a more satisfying work life." --Steven Levy, author of In the Plex
"Pragmatic and thoughtful, Karen Wickre shows how networking can move from being transactional to being transformational in your life. Taking the Work Out of Networking gives you the know-how to connect with the know-who. This is one of the best 'read it in the morning, use it in the afternoon' career guides I've ever read, especially in our social media era."--Chip Conley, author of Wisdom @ Work: The Making of a Modern Elder
"For introverts who panic at the idea of networking, Wickre's book is a deep, calming breath. You can do it."--Sophia Dembling, author of The Introvert's Way and Introverts in Love
"So many of us dislike or even fear the transactional nature of traditional networking. Karen Wickre has done a great service by showing how it's possible to make genuine connections that last, that we can nurture across the world for all kinds of purposes."--Chris Anderson, Head of TED and author of TED Talks: The Official TED Guide to Public Speaking
"Taking the Work Out of Networking is a networking game-changer. Karen Wickre reveals how anyone--even the introverts dreading their social obligations--can make strides in their career by building meaningful connections in a thoughtful, diligent way."--Olivia Fox Cabane, author of The Charisma Myth
