When it comes to building a network, new research shows that there is no one-size-fits-all strategy; different kinds of people benefit from different kinds of networks. The key challenge, then, is to figure out the right kind of network for you. In this article, the authors share the findings of their research, which shows that the key to building a performance-boosting network is to include people who support you in areas where your cognitive style is not naturally suited. Most people do just the opposite: they build networks that reinforce their existing strengths, rather than compensating for their weaknesses. Based on these insights, the authors share a three-step guide to boosting the power of your own network.
