We closed the show with Netweaver Bob Littell. Bob came on to share information about Netweaving – Pay It Forward Week which is April 26-30. The objective is to encourage as many people as possible to set up NewWeaving HOSTING Meetings in Metro Atlanta. After setting up a meeting to introduce two people whom the NetWeaver believes would benefit meeting and knowing each other, the NetWeaver becomes the ‘host’ at a meeting which can take place anywhere in the city (restaurant, business club, coffee shop, etc.) Following a little introduction of what NetWeaving is all about (easily explained on the website) the NetWeaver host encouraged his or her two ‘hostees’ to find ways to help each other as well as discover people they probably know in common without realizing it. Towards the end of the meeting, one or both of the people being hosted usually turn the table on their NetWeaving host and ask how they can help her or him? Instead of something self-serving the NetWeaver simply asks each to “pay if forward” and each, subsequently agree to host a meeting for two others.
And while these meetings are taking place ‘externally’, internally SHRM (Society for Human Resource Management) is promoting “NetWeaving” (introductions to be made across departments and across functions) just as a way to get to know people better and thus help tear down or least walls and silos within the company.
Think of the power going forward of all the connections which will be made that week, and then going forward for days, weeks, months, and even years from now – all triggered by the ripples created during this week. to learn more please go to the website www.netweaving-pif-week.com.
