Opening General Session #1019 (1.00 CH)
Many Communicate, Few Connect. The common denominators of the most successful people are the ability to effectively communicate and connect, regardless of the situation or audience. In a competitive world filled with a global workforce, numerous communication challenges and daily digital distractions, getting your message heard has never been more challenging. Clear, concise communication is no longer enough to get results: connection must be part of the equation. Productivity decreases, collaboration stalls, accountability suffers and conflict and stress escalate when even the simplest of miscommunication occurs. Without connection, these outcomes are only heightened. Connect and communicate on a deeper level to form crucial relationships that drive productivity, engagement, and collaboration.
