The Practices of Connection

Last week we explored the five principles my good friend John Maxwell wrote about in his book, Everyone Communicates, Few Connect.These principles are foundational to our ability to create deep, rich, and lasting connections with the people that are important to you. In case you missed them, they are:

  • Connecting Increases Your Influence in Every Situation
  • Connecting Is All About Others
  • Connecting Goes Beyond Words
  • Connecting Always Requires Energy
  • Connecting is More Skill Than Talent

So, how do you put these into action? That would be The 5 Connection Practices. Come find out what they are at this week’s Coffee and Coaching.

If you enjoy the series and would like to dig deeper into “ECFC” why not sign up for the Mastermind group that will tackle this book in July? The ten week program begins on July 23. You will learn about the 5 connecting principles and the 5 connecting practices. Learn how to enrich the connections in your life and turn them into valuable relationships that pay dividends to your business, advocacy, or other personal endeavor.

That’s Coffee AND Coaching

Don’t foget, we also coach people who are facing personal or business challenges. In 5 minutes, I can help you see what your next step needs to be with whatever situation you have. And once we have made that first step, we Mastermind with the group. I am continuously amazed at the genius and generousity of our Coffee and Coaching devotees. It is inspiring and lots of fun! So come with a question or a challenge where you could use a little help and see the true wisdom of the team!
