NetWeaving is all about putting other people together in win/win relationships that will solve problems, satisfy needs or result in new or expanded business opportunities. It's also all about making yourself available as part of a resource network. This gratuitous strategic matchmaking and resource-providing improves the situation or quality of others' lives.
NetWeaving works because it is people connecting with and enriching other people--for good. It's diametrically opposed to the back-slapping, good ole boy "take and use" form of networking which is internally focused on how I alone can benefit from my network of contacts and centers of influence.
NetWeaving is externally focused. It's all about giving and helping others while having the confidence to know that eventually you, the NetWeaver, will benefit in return. As briefly mentioned in the previous chapter, the difference between being a power broker and a NetWeaver is that, to a power broker, strategic matchmaking represents a means to an end rather than an end in and of itself. In other words, a power broker will say, "I'll open this door for you so you can access the right people, but I'll expect to receive something immediately in return for doing so." To a NetWeaver, the act of NetWeaving represents the end all by itself; nothing is expected up front in return. The end (i.e., additional sales, referrals, etc.) might or might not come, but the deed and the outcome are not connected nor contingent upon each other.
Most people never consistently set aside time to strategize or brainstorm. What if you always were in that creative mode? What if your mind was always cooking up ways to make something happen? Just like a comedian who is always seeing things through a specially focused lens that finds or creates humor in everyday circumstances and situations, the power NetWeaver is always seeing things through the lens of opportunity. It is a matter of constant brainstorming, looking for ways to connect, serve, do a favor, add a resource or create an opportunity.
NetWeaving requires trust. You must trust the process just like you plant a seed and water it day after day with no signs of growth. You know that with the proper soil, water and sunlight the plant will grow. Once it pops out of the ground, the growth seems to accelerate. NetWeaving involves gathering and storing a great deal of information that won't be used until a later date, sometimes until much later. It also involves taking action and having the confidence to know that there will be favorable consequences even when there is no immediate, tangible evidence.
