The 'Networking' skill is more broad and more applicable to other areas than people realise. To be a good networker is to be confident in your own skin, knowing that you genuinely have something interesting to say and generating meaningful relationships from the conversations you have. As you learn to externally network, you will also be developing your ability to internally network which can lead to better relationships with your colleagues, clients and thus your boss. It's only onwards and upwards from there!
