Publisher's Summary

How to connect with your people in a time of social disconnection and virtual work environments.

If you are a CXO, a sales executive, a leader at any level, this may be the most important book you listen to this year. Here's why....

But first a warning: This is not for the leader who wants to remain in a hierarchical top-down, power-based leadership position. If that is you, good luck, because the employees of today, and our remote economy are demanding a different style of leadership.

This book focuses on the increasing need to be less technical and tactical and to be more relationship focused. It begins with knowing yourself, and your willingness to really invest in knowing your employees and teams. It is evident, now more than ever, as we face both an increasingly emotionally disconnected and physically disconnected work environment and world, that our ability to create human connection is our most powerful tool as a leader. Time and time again, it is the “soft stuff” that makes the “hard stuff” work.

In Connections Change Everything, you will find 16 daily steps and actions you can selectively adopt to truly become an impactful presence in the lives of the people you lead. When you become more present and connected by practicing these strategies, be rewarded with greater productivity, retention, and profitability and the fulfilling knowledge that you, too, have built a legacy of connection.

Quick and easy to understand, Connections Change Everything focuses on the following key leadership skills that will help you build stronger human connections in this remote and physically distanced environment.

  • How vulnerability makes you more relatable.
  • How to listen not just to interrupt
  • The (negative and positive) power of digital technology, and how to tame it.
  • The power of breaking bread and creating shared experiences.
  • How to have difficult conversations
  • How to effectively manage conflict resolution

It’s a wealth of good information. We have made it retainable and reinforceable by also including a list of “16 Connection Correction Tips” that you can post in your office or calendar for daily reference to connection and leadership success starting today.
