Only one thing stands between you and success: connecting with people
Learn how to identify with people and relate to others in a way that increases your influence with them. If you can connect with others, your sense of community improves, your ability to create teamwork increases, and your influence skyrockets. People who connect with others have better relationships, experience less conflict and get more done. Leaders who have learned the art of connection are able to communicate their ideas persuasively, establishing buy-in and attracting followers.
This 5-week program takes you through the five principles and five practices required to develop the skill of connecting including:
- Finding common ground
- Keeping your communication simple
- Capturing people’s interest
- Inspiring people
- Staying authentic in your relationships
We will be working through the book Everyone Communicates Few Connect by John C Maxwell. Please purchase a copy of the book from koorong.com.au or amazon.com.au or any other bookstore. (approx $20).
