Everyone Communicates Few Connect is one of my favorite Mastermind groups that I love to facilitate. I work with innovative women of the world as they work through the challenges of communicating with those they lead in their work environments and among their teams, to becoming more empowered to find themselves connecting more with the knowledge and skills gained in our mastermind groups*. Finding common ground with others and connecting with them is a powerful way to communicate with others.
Here are three lessons I learned from this book with the title "Everyone Communicates Few Connect," authored by my friend and mentor, John C. Maxwell.
"Connecting Increases Your Influence in Every Situation—If you can connect with others—one-on-one, in groups, and with an audience—your sense of community improves, your ability to create teamwork increases, and your influence skyrockets. People who connect with others have better relationships, experience less conflict, and get more things done than those who cannot connect. Leaders who have learned the art of connection are able to communicate their ideas persuasively, establishing buy-in and attracting followers."

"Connecting is All About Others— Good communicators have enough humility to recognize that they are not the expert authorities on all matters. They endeavor not to impress people with knowledge, but to connect with others authentically in order to gain the opportunity to influence them. As such, they patiently seek to understand their audience before speaking."
"Connecting Goes Beyond Words— Audiences respond to how a communicator makes them feel rather than to what a communicator has to say. Our actions, tone and style communicate far more than our words. Experts estimate that 90% of the impression we convey has nothing to do with what we actually say."
Imagine yourself more empowered and filled with pride as you hone this skill of not just communicating but connecting with others.

What is a Mastermind group?
*Mastermind groups offer a combination of brainstorming, education, peer accountability and support in a group setting to sharpen your business and personal skills. A mastermind group helps you and your mastermind group members achieve success. Participants challenge each other to set powerful goals, and more importantly, to accomplish them.
