I’ve found great pleasure and abundance from sharing my connections with others just starting out in business, seeking career change, or looking to expand their social and business network.
I encourage you to give your friends and trusted associates a “LinkedIn High Five” – give people the ability to ask you for introductions to 5 of your contacts and for reasons they’d like to be introduced.
This will do a few things:
1. It will demonstrate to others the strengths of your connections and network.
2. It will establish credibility with others who see value in who you know.
3. It will create opportunities for you to re-engage with your connections that may have gone dormant.
