The key is to tap into your inner resources while working wisely with your outer resources: your network.

Excerpts from Book Review by Paul Swift
Reprinted with permission from Public Relations Quarterly, Spring, 1996
"People Power is basically a handbook on how to build a professional personality -- a nineties version of How to Win Friends and Influence People. Fisher dissects networking's major and minor components and analyzes them and applies them to all sorts of personal and professional situations and objectives. The shy, the obnoxious, the forgetful, the awkward and the nerdy among us need no longer continue without friends and associates they can count on.
People Power is also directed to the vast majority among us whom she describes as "networking dabblers." "They network haphazardly, a little bit here and there. Sometimes it seems to work and sometimes it doesn't, but they don't really know how to improve their results." Fisher shows us how to do just that -- through 12 Power Principles, which include, for example, The Power of Giving, The Power of Staying in Touch, The Power of Listening, and The Power of Commitment.
Did I say Fisher treats networking as a science? Perhaps secular religion is more appropriate. She writes: Networking is as simple as friendship and as complex as matchmaking. . . . Networking provides a form of community, family, and camaraderie. . . . It satisfies a basic need to be connected, to belong, and to contribute. . . . It is a life-affirming process and a vital ingredient for success and happiness. We exist as part of a vast and intricate web of connections. They bring us joy and peace, motivation and rich ideas. They enrich all aspects of our lives."
