  5. Human Connection Is Business
  6. Be In The Moment
  7. Identify How You Connect

Reflective Questions:

  • Who do you have a deep connection with? Why do you think this connection is so strong?
  • List some of the benefits you might see if you were to form stronger connections at work.
  • If there were one thing you could do every day to form a stronger connection at work, what would it be?

Homework Assignment:

Write down the names of 2-3 people you are going to really focus on and then create a strategy for “operation connectedness.” Assignment #2 (optional) is to conduct the eye contact exercise shown in the video.
