Whenever attracting and retaining talent becomes a challenge, today’s leaders seem to feel that what they lack is the latest perk. In reality, the problem they’re facing isn’t a perk gap, but a connection gap. Too many managers lack the ability to make positive connections with their key reports.</p> </div><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-audio-available"> <div class="field-label">Has Audio?

At the center of this approach is change—specifically, a new mindset that changes the way people see their relationships and commitments to others. This outward mindset helps a leader become the kind of person others like, work hard for, and admire.

However, this type of fear is usually unfounded; what’s likely getting in the way of your own success is you. To overcome your fears, you must learn how to ask effectively—and in some cases, outrageously—to get affirmative responses that can lead to raises, promotions, and career success. You must build up your confidence, consider the needs of others, and be first in line to do the asking.</p> </div><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-audio-available"> <div class="field-label">Has Audio?

By polishing skills related to communication, you can learn to shine while leading meetings, giving presentations, managing change, or building relationships with others. Improving communication skills takes practice and effort, but it pays off.
