Connect With Others

Everyone Communicates, Few Connect
Friday, May 15, 2:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m.
This session is based on John Maxwell’s insightful book, “Everyone Communicates, Few Connect.” With the vast amount of information and communication flowing these days, it is becoming increasingly difficult to be heard. 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 this ability, the fact is anyone can learn how to make every communication an opportunity for a powerful connection. Join us to learn how you can use the “Five Principles and Five Practices of Connection” to relate to others in a way that increases your influence.
