If you can connect with others- one-on-one, in groups, and with an audience – your sense of community improves, your ability to create team work increases, and your influence skyrockets. People who connect with others have better relationships, experience less conflict, and get more things done than those who cannot connect. Leaders who have learned the art of connection are able to communicate their ideas persuasively, establishing buy-in and attracting followers.
Learn how to improve your results, increase team performance and connect better with those you lead.
Join us for this course and learn the “how-tos” of connecting while we discuss the following principles and practices:
- Connecting Increases Your Influence in Every Situation
Leaders who have learned the art of connection are able to communicate their ideas persuasively, establishing buy-in and attracting followers. You will only be able to reach your potential, regardless of your profession or chosen path, when you learn to connect with other people. Otherwise, you’ll be like a nuclear power plant disconnected from the grid. You’ll have incredible resources and potential, but you’ll never be able to put them to use.
- Connecting Is All About Others
Before you can add value to others, you must first learn to value others. Instead of trying to conform others to your agenda, position yourself to see from their vantage point. As you gain awareness of the needs and hopes of others, you will be able to craft messages that connect with them emotionally.
- Connecting Goes Beyond Words
You can’t merely pass along information; you must model the message you want to deliver. A vision cannot materialize through you until it has taken root within you. Owning a vision enables a communicator to move from informing others to inspiring them.
- Connecting Always Requires Energy
To make the most of your communication opportunities, you must expend energy proactively. Leaders have responsibility to initiate the connection. It’s also the leader’s duty to prepare so that he or she can communicate clearly when the opportunity arises. Preparation consumes time and energy, but its benefits far outweigh its costs.
- Connecting Is More Skill Than Natural Talent
People aren’t born with the ability to connect, nor does it develop by accident. Connection happens when people hone their skills and mine their experiences. Great communicators make the most of their background, personality, natural abilities, and knowledge in order to engage an audience—whether in conversation with one person or when speaking to a gathering of thousands.
- Connectors Connect on Common Ground
Connecting with others is a matter of choice. Good leaders and communicators don’t isolate themselves, and they deliberately keep their people informed. They decide to make themselves available, to listen when their people speak, and to show others that they care. Over time, their thoughtfulness and humility attract people to their side.
- Connectors Do the Difficult Work of Keeping It Simple
Being simple is hard work. Great leaders grasp the nuances and intricacies of tough issues, and condense them into simple statements that easily can be communicated to their people. To keep communication uncomplicated, leaders quickly get to the point, use plain language, and repeat their primary message.
- Connectors Create an Experience Everyone Enjoys
In the Information Age, attention spans continue to shorten, and you have a limited amount of time before people choose whether to tune in or tune out. Do everything within you power to engage your audience early. Once you’ve drawn people in, hold their attention by telling stories, showing pictures and inviting participation. People remember what they see and do much better than what they hear.
- Connectors Inspire People
Vision without passion is a picture without possibilities. By itself vision doesn’t inspire change. It must be supplemented with visible passion on the part of the leader in order to compel people to act. Leaders set the tone for the entire team by the excitement and energy level they bring to their work.
- Connectors Live What They Communicate
People buy in to the leader before they buy in to the message. You are the best advertisement for your cause. Whether you intend to show them or not, your true colors eventually shine through—onstage, at work, or at home. If you want to connect well with people, you must become the kind of person with whom you would like to connect.
ONLY ONE THING STANDS BETWEEN YOU AND SUCCESS.
It isn’t experience; it isn’t talent. If you want to succeed, you must learn how to connect with people. And while it may seem like some people are just born with it, the fact is anyone can learn how to make every communication an opportunity for a powerful connection.
