How Smart Leaders Connect Through Better Conversations
With the advancement of technology, and the growing desire to be more efficient and effective, we are slowly disengaging, and unconsciously separating ourselves. We are denying ourselves the ability to be present and to truly experience what is around us with all five senses. Feeling and being more connected at work is a key component to an individual’s happiness. Happiness and fulfillment at work is just as much a risk factor for life expectancy as is diabetes, heart disease and obesity. It is proven that a joyful employee is a more productive, creative, and committed employee, and an asset to a company’s bottom line.
As a leader it falls to you to start the conversation and to create the culture. Connections Change Everything will show you how to practice “connected leadership,” daily, which emphasizesbeing relatable as a leader and having “present” conversations with your employees.
