“Rachel B. Simon walks the walk in this unique spin on networking that doesn’t ask us to compromise our identities. The email templates and tips scattered throughout the book provide examples demonstrating that she can show as much as tell, and can lead us to a new way of thinking about how we can network and be ourselves at the same time.”—David Satchell, author of Extracting the Leader from Within

“At a time when more of us are starved for meaningful connection than ever, Rachel has put together a wealth of useful tips all of us can use to up our game when it comes to connecting and relating. Not only are her tips thoughtful for professional networking, but the many real examples she provides are useful tools for us to navigate connecting and networking in many different contexts in our own, authentic way.”—Andrew Blotky, author of Honestly Speaking: How the Way We Communicate Transforms Leadership, Love, and Life

“The thought of networking can paralyze, or it can catapult your career. You decide. In today’s disconnected and fragmented business world, Simon teaches you ‘the goods’ on how authentic relationships (even virtually) can be your most powerful currency yet.”—Paul Epstein, former NFL and NBA business executive; bestselling author of The Power of Playing Offense

Relationships at Work is a must-read for anyone who needs to navigate and thrive in any organization, whether it’s a fast-growing start-up, a multinational, or something in between. Simon has done invaluable work here that so many people inside a company can use: new hires, mid-career folks, managers—and even executives. Her many examples of emails to write, situations to navigate, and checklists will help anyone who wants to succeed at their job (and really, life itself).”—Karen Wickre, bestselling author of Taking the Work Out of Networking

“This is so much more than a book to help you approach networking with more ease and confidence—even as an introvert! This book is a practical guide to help you create, foster, and deepen meaningful and inclusive relationships at work so you can build a rewarding and results-driven career.”—Kelli Thompson, leadership coach, speaker, and author of Closing the Confidence Gap
