Connecting is the ability to identify with people and relate to them in such a way that it increases our influence with them. The ability to connect with others begins with understanding the value of people. There is a direct correlation between achievement and the ability to care for and connect with people. On Monday, March 1st at 11:30 am CST, I am officially launching my Everyone Communicates, Few Connect Mastermind where I will reveal how to make every communication an opportunity for a powerful connection.
During this Mastermind Study Group, you will learn and practice how to connect authentically, discover and unlock the 5 Connecting Principles, and understand the best technique for cultivating relationships. John C. Maxwell, an internationally recognized leadership expert, speaker, coach, and author who has sold over 20 million books, says, “Great leaders-- the truly successful ones who are in the top one percent-- all have one thing in common. They know that acquiring and keeping good people is a leader’s most important task. An organization cannot increase its productivity-- but people can!”
Connecting goes beyond words. In fact, more than 90% of the impression that we often convey has nothing to do with what we actually say! When thought, emotion, and action are congruent, connecting goes beyond what we say because we are now expressing what people can feel, and we are connecting with them more than just verbally.
“If you want to succeed, talent isn't enough, education isn't enough, experience isn't enough.... only one thing stands between you and your full potential and that is the ability to connect!” -John Maxwell.
