I hate networking.” We hear this all the time from executives, other professionals, and MBA students. They tell us that networking makes them feel uncomfortable and phony—even dirty. Although some people have a natural passion for it—namely, the extroverts who love and thrive on social interaction—many understandably see it as brown-nosing, exploitative, and inauthentic.

But in today’s world, networking is a necessity. A mountain of research shows that professional networks lead to more job and business opportunities, broader and deeper knowledge, improved capacity to innovate, faster advancement, and greater status and authority. Building and nurturing professional relationships also improves the quality of work and increases job satisfaction.

When we studied 165 lawyers at a large North American law firm, for example, we found that their success depended on their ability to network effectively both internally (to get themselves assigned to choice clients) and externally (to bring business into the firm). Those who regarded these activities as distasteful and avoided them had fewer billable hours than their peers.

Fortunately, our research shows that an aversion to networking can be overcome. We’ve identified four strategies to help people change their mindset.

We hide this from ourselves with theories and concepts that do not bear deep examination. And we will not remedy this simply through the accumulation of more facts. It is not clear whether our culture can ever develop sufficient knowledge, rigor, imagination, and humility to grasp the phenomenon of ISIS. But for now, we should admit that we are not only horrified but baffled.

The future loss of Yahoo Pipes in August this year [1] will be a major blow to the monitoring/research community and also web site authors looking for selected content. Its ability to combine and filter multiple RSS feeds into one feed remains unique among free hosted services. This post will focus on how we could replace Yahoo Pipes for these functions [2]. We will not deal here with the web page scraping Pipes was able to do too. So I went looking for substitutes which could merge and filter feeds. I mean, real ones : as simple as Pipes. For instance, they shall have a graphic user interface (GUI) ; coding shouldn’t be necessary. The only difficulty allowed should be the use of regular expressions (Regex).

Yahoo has finally given up on Yahoo Pipes, along with a number of other tools that weren’t making them any money. So, all of us who relied on Yahoo Pipes to clean up dodgy RSS feeds need an alternative. And fast. Ultimately, the alternative tool you choose to go with for your RSS feed manipulation will depend on what you were originally using Yahoo Pipes for, your operating system, and your technical proficiency. Most of these solutions will involve a little bit of know-how and your own personal server or virtual private server solution.

So many professionals believe the more hours they put in and the later they stay at work, the more successful they’ll be. But a study published in the Psychological Review conducted by Dr. K. Anders Ericsson proves that when it comes to your time spent in the office, quality trumps quantity.
