“Other things being equal, what is going to give you an edge? It’s the relationships that you have that allow you to augment what you know and allow you to take the ‘what you know’ and actually to translate it into practice, into something the organization can use. It makes all the difference.” - Herminia Ibarra, INSEAD Professor of Organisational Behaviour.
Three types of networks
There are three types of networks important in business: operational, personal and strategic.
While a lot of managers excel at building and using their operational network, they often overlook their personal and strategic networks.
Operational networking involves cultivating the relationships with people you need to accomplish your job, like people and colleagues at work.
Personal networking is an afterthought for many busy managers. When you work 60-80 hour weeks, the easiest thing to eliminate from your schedule is neighborhood social event, your alumni meet etc.
Strategic networking is the toughest but most essential if managers want to become business leaders. Managers are encouraged to look beyond their industry as well. This allows managers to share ideas about best practices in management, learn new approaches and keep close tabs on developments in business and technology. It helps managers to see the bigger picture and create their own visionary approach.
CommonFloor allows you to meet a diverse group of like-minded professionals, living in geographic proximity. Socializing this way helps you to develop important social skills for many professionals and may be the first place you turn when you start thinking about changing careers.

The 5 of us (Lalit, Sumit, Mitanshu, Satya, Vikas) waiting for Dominoes pizzas! A good start with pizzas prepares a good base for the day.
Its raining! Rains with regular breaks(read: photo sessions) puts (slippery) cheese on the base.
Baking the base for optimum time is very important for a good preparation. We at commonfloor believes in having good fun in the sunlight that follows the rains!
One step leads to the other. Putting the vegetable and sausages on the pizza is the next step. Put the pizza for baking quickly so as to satisfy the hunger and greed!
Congratulations: The final pizza is ready:

- Badly wanted to ask for something from someone in your locality but were too hesitant to ask, however in need you might have been.
- Wanted to form a club of your interest but you did not know how to find people who share same interests.
- Were feeling too tired to cook. Just wished if you could order your favorite food from some place but you never had time to explore your locality and were not aware of places to order from.
- Wanted to explore your neighborhood but you were too tired after coming back from office or too occupied to have some time out for the same.
So where LinkedIn can serve as a great place to form contacts with peers who might help you drive your professional life and Facebook or Orkut can help you reunite with old friends, CommonFloor can find you golf partner, bridge players, trekking enthusiasts or your local morning laughter club. On one hand forming a club around your favorite past time is an incentive to some, having something as practical as a car-pool will be a lucrative idea for most, attractive even more when CommonFloor provides you with all the tools to manage your groups, find new members, add them and call for meetings, suggestions and much more ... just a CLICK away.
