The Art of Connecting
IN THIS SUMMARY
In every kind of business and in every industry, workplaces are becoming more diverse, which has important and challenging implications for communication and for relationship building. In The Art of Connecting, Authors Claire Raines and Lara Ewing offer five core principles based on their Titanium Rule—do unto others according to their druthers—for overcoming differences and connecting on the basis of our similarities rather than our apparent differences.
Masterful connectors believe that there is always a bridge, show genuine curiosity in others, do not assume they know everything about a person, sees every individual as a culture unto themselves, and reach out with no strings attached.
