All three of this entry’s topics are remarkable,
but all may not be topical for everyone.  One
short blurb though is a millisecond that you
may be able to share with people you know
who would be interested.
Two business articles that impact the technical
arena identify Novartis’s business strategy for
next  decade and an intriguing “green card”
program.
John Maxwell’s book about connecting with people
is recommended to be on your reading list.  He
introduces it with a “youtube”, really cool.

Key to networking is connecting with people
to arrive at committed networks.  Maxwell writes
about connecting and how to achieve it:
“When I interact with people, whether one on
one as a group,
or with an audience, I know I’ve
connected when I sense:

     EXTRA EFFORT -
people go the extra mile

     UNSOLICITED APPRECIATION -
they say positive things

     UNGUARDED OPENNESS -
they demonstrate trust

     INCREASED COMMUNICATION -
they express themselves more readily

     ENJOYABLE EXPERIENCES -
they feel good about what they are doing

    EMOTIONAL BONDING -
they display a connection on an emotional level

     POSITIVE ENERGY -
their emotions are charged by being together

     GROWING SYNERGY -
their effectiveness is greater than the sum of
their contributions

     UNCONDITIONAL LOVE -
they are accepting without reservation.”
