Iron Connections - Day 81

Being connected is so important nowadays. Sitting at home waiting for one of the executive search companies to call is merely not enough - you need to involve a relavant part of your network to multiply your impact towards your future employer. Metaphorical speaking I most be ready to act on an opportunity that has arrived through my network as a "strong "iron" connection.

On LinkedIn I'm connected to 1.145 people giving me over 242.300 2nd degree connections. But my guess is, that only a very small percentage of those 1.145 1st level connections are capable of opening an opportunity for me. But who?

Therefore I'm spending hours each day going through each of my 1.145 connections to evaluate their ability to help me with my next career opportunity. To find those "iron" connections.

I've just ordered a new book from Amazon. The name "x-teams" immediately caught my eye as I read about it in the Danish business newspaper - Børsen. The reviewer assigned 5 marks out of six, so expectations are high.
X-Teams written by Deborah Ancona and Henrik Bresman raises an interesting question already on the front cover.
"Why do teams fail?"
The topic of the book is how to build teams that lead, innovate, and succeed. I'll write a short review as soon as I've read it.

Mia Blichfeldt

Sometimes you get lucky. I shot this natural portrait of Mia Blichfeldt - a very gifted and up-coming badminton player at a private party - just a month before she became the youngest Danish Champion in Badminton in the senior league - and she is only 16!

Of course you can find many photos of Mia "in action", but only very few where she is being just herself - outside the badminton arena.
