Too Busy for Details: Stories & Strategies to Solidify Leadership Connection
It’s not hard to imagine, most of us have seen it: a disconnected leader trying desperately to make big things happen yet completely out of touch with their people — the very people they rely on to get it done.

In the rush of business demands, it’s easy to neglect some details. But leadership connection should never be one of them. Every business relationship rests on a connection. How well you solidify those connections directly impacts your influence and success.

From relatable, real-life, and sometimes, raw stories of “what to do and not do,” discover how impactful leaders, business owners, entrepreneurs, and successful, everyday people strengthen their connection and leadership impact.

When these commonsense strategies are applied, business owners, managers, and leaders at any level understand:

  • Why their people want authentic connections and how to establish them
  • How active listening and honest communication build greater respect, trust, and relationships
  • The all-too-common “sins” which destroy leadership influence
  • The commandments impactful leaders habitually practice

The presentation is perfect for:

  • Leaders, managers, emerging leaders, and high potential team members
  • Teams preparing for succession or culture change.
  • Any group working toward greater team engagement and trust.
