Good business culture and relations

A book about the potential of networking

Knowing how to ‘do’ our jobs, but above all being able to communicate and build relationships with others, sharing and passing on our own abilities, and creating a network of relationships that will last over time, whilst focusing on being fully rounded men and women, and not just sentient ‘robots’: this is what companies and the labour market are increasingly demanding from us. And it is also one of the effects of the reign of digitisation, which only apparently replaces the work of people with that of machines.

Gianfranco Minutolo reflects on the potential of relationships compared with simple knowledge, in his work I robot non sanno fare networking (per adesso) (‘robots don’t know how to network (for now)’), which has just been published.

The book is based on the idea that the current labour market appears to be displaying an increasing interest in so-called soft skills, which serve to make one individual better equipped than another for a particular role. In addition to this, it appears that top among these soft skills, which will enable both young and older people and to deal with the exponential social and technological changes that await us, is the ability to create and maintain interpersonal and professional relationships over time. This is what many people know as networking.

The text is thus a simple, passionate and detailed account of the most effective networking dynamics and techniques. The element that distinguishes everything is the experience that lies behind the issues being explored; the book is the result of the author’s personal experience, and thus recounts a series of real-life cases. Each example is equated to portions of in-depth methodological study, accompanied by quotes; these are referred to as ‘take-aways’. The work is designed to help people to understand how the skills learned in forty years of experience can be replicated and are within the reach of the reader, through training and a good methodological approach.

Indeed, Minutolo’s long business and professional background provides the foundation for his writing; he has occupied several prestigious roles in the alumni relations department at Bocconi University and as director of the Bocconi Alumni Association (BAA). And he writes well, succeeding in providing the reader not only with the information he or she needs, but also, and above all, with a sense of what needs to be done in order to add to the knowledge he or she may possess by building the relationships that are required in business.

After reading Minutolo, it is abundantly clear that networking is an important element of good corporate culture, and one which must constantly be cultivated and developed.
