What is it, who has it, and how can we get some of it?
Great leaders and visionaries (you know the type – Obama, Steve Jobs, Jacinda Ardern). They’ve all got one thing that we all want.
An ability to connect with others.
Is it a natural skill? Yes, in some ways. But it’s possible, with work, to learn how to achieve it in a way that’s truly you.
The result? Everything you say has real authenticity and resonance.. And everything you do has more impact for your mission and the humans around you.
So the next time you feel that what you’re saying isn’t coming naturally, or that you’re not being heard in the way you’d like. Or the next time the thing you’re delivering doesn’t get the end result you’d hoped for.
Stop and think about where the disconnect is.
