Bonding By Committee:
Virginia Rego, who works in a division of a government education ministry, cites the power of getting involved in committees. It takes her beyond her own department, helps her develop skills outside her immediate job description and most importantly allows her to network with individuals from "other departments that normally I wouldn't be working with directly." You will build internal champions and be a champion for others. --Darcy Rezac's Positive Networking Tip of the Week.
