Welcome to the Newton Networking Inventory

 

Entering your name and email address is optional to give all respondents the option of being kept updated of the research outcome at that email address. Age and gender are required to help identify trends in the dataset. No personally identifiable data forms any part of this research, nor will it be shared with any third party.

Below are statements describing various aspects of the networking mix. Please use the rating scale below to describe how accurately each statement describes you. Describe yourself as you honestly see yourself now, not as you wish to be in the future.

Please read each statement carefully, and then fill in the bubble that corresponds to the number on the scale.

NB add checkbox  for 'please keep me updated on items of networking research interest via occasional email to this address'

Thank you. That completes the NNI survey. Here are your scores illustrated on a nine axis radar chart. Also shown on the chart are the mean scores for a group of highly effective networkers  identified during my doctoral research. Please refer back to 'Newton on Networking' to consider how to bring your own networjking effectiveness in line with theirs on any axes on which you are underperforming.
