Networking Lessons According to an ex-Goldman partner, women need to get a lot better at the quid pro quo. - November 10, 2003
November 10, 2003 | Fortune | Interview of Connie Duckworth by Bethany McLean.

Networking is the glue of all business--it's the foundation of how business gets done. Your relationships drive how successful you'll be. I had guidance from very good mentors, all of whom were men. There were no women at the time...you can ask someone for something and they'll ask for something back, and that's a norm and an expectation, not an infringement on a personal relationship. It's not personal. It's business.

Connections with Integrity
February 13, 2012 |Strategy + BUsiness | by Reid Hoffman.

The venture capitalist who co-founded LinkedIn reveals the surefire system that he has used since high school for evaluating potential business relationships.....It seems counterintuitive, but the more altruistic your attitude, the more benefits you will gain from the relationship. If you insist on a quid pro quo every time you help others, you will have a much narrower network and a more limited set of opportunities. Conversely, if you set out to help others by introducing them to the right people, simply because you think it’s the right thing to do, you will rapidly reinforce your own reputation and expand your universe of possibilities. For me, that is the greatest value of understanding alliances; it can help you build the kind of network on which great careers are built.
