Some Assembly Required:
A Networking Guide for Women

Marny Lifshen updates her award-winning content customized for women in the workplace. Some Assembly Required: A Networking Guide for Women is the ideal book for women in any industry who know that their success is tied to people. This book is a practical guide packed with useful tips, creative techniques and real-world stories that are relevant for women today. It is written so that every woman will benefit from reading it regardless of profession, age, location, or stage of life. It inspires women who are not active networkers to make it a part of their lives, and helps those who do currently network become even more effective. The book provides:

  • insight on how networking is different for men and women
  • an understanding of what networking really is and why it is important
  • tips on how to use your inherent skills and styles to your advantage
  • resources for where and how to start networking
  • practical and effective skills and tools for networking
  • a new way to look at networking for mothers (both working and stay at home).
I have personally bought over three dozen of these books! I have given one to each young woman in my office, and its mandatory reading for the engineers I’m mentoring. It is empowering and an important reminder of the importance of networking throughout every stage of our careers. I love that it is full of tips to improve networking skills, breaking an overwhelming task into bite size pieces.

I was very pleased to be included as a feature columnist for the National Association of Women in Construction’s publication IMAGE Magazine summer issue. I focused the article on the importance of evaluating and adapting your networking strategy to remain relevant to your current position and your future career goals. Too often professionals simply join the same organizations, attend the same events and connect with the same people rather than revamping their networking to yield more impactful results.
