September - Virtual Chapter Event

Business Acumen

World-renowned leadership expert John C. Maxwell says if you want to succeed, you must learn how to connect with people. And while it may seem like some folks are just born with it, the fact is anyone can learn how to make every communication an opportunity for a powerful connection. In Everyone Communicates, Few Connect, Maxwell shares the Five Principles and Five Practices to develop the crucial skill of connecting, including:

  • Finding Common Ground
  • Keeping Your Communication Simple
  • Capturing People’s Interest
  • Inspiring People
  • Staying Authentic in all Your Relationships

The ability to connect with others is a major determining factor in reaching your full potential. It’s no secret! Connecting is a skill you can learn and apply in your personal, professional, and family relationships.

In this session, we will explore two key principles and two key practices that can powerfully change and enhance your ability to not just communicate but to connect with those around you.
