How do some people become master connectors? How can you create more meaningful connections for your life and your work? And, especially, what role does empathy play in forming meaningful connections, particularly in the business world? We’re going to talk about all of that and more today with my guest, Michelle Tillis Lederman. Michelle is known for helping people work better together and advance their individual impact. She is one of my go-to resources for effective networking, and more importantly, effective connections to benefit your own life as well as your work. Listen in as we answer these questions and how you too can be more comfortable and authentic when connecting even if you think it’s not your strong suit.
- Networking is something you do, being a connector is who you are.
- Find a way to keep yourself engaged in the conversation by asking your brain questions around the conversation.
- You don’t have to agree with everyone you talk to. When you disagree, acknowledge and add – that keeps us in a conversation.
- Sometimes the curiosity of trying to understand and being provocative can do something for somebody else because you’re showing interest, and you’re also making them think.
“Look for opportunities to do the things that you can say yes to. If you want a place to start, start by saying, ‘How can I help?’” — Michelle Tillis Lederman
