Episode 181: How To Become a Superconnector, With Scott Gerber

#181 

“Anybody can be a connector. It is a mindset and a framework for life, not a series of undefinable traits.”

Networking is a word that many of us hate; it brings to mind slimy interactions that don’t feel genuine, and looking at people as a means to an end. Scott Gerber is passionate about overhauling our ideas ABOUT networking, and instead focusing on being a Superconnector and community builder.

In this episode we discuss how to become a Superconnector, the steps for curating a dedicated community, and treating your community as family.

  • What makes a Superconnector? (1:35)
  • Are Superconnectors born or made? (05:33)
  • How connectors operate (13:38)
  • Getting trapped in a cycle of doing things the way they’ve always been done (15:39)

“A foundational principle of all Superconnectors is that they do not allow technology to usurp their humanity, they use technology to amplify their humanity.”

– Scott Gerber
