Susan McPherson is a “serial connector” and suggests we need to get back to humanity. She is the author of The Lost Art of Connecting: The Gather, Ask, Do Method for Building Meaningful Business Relationships and shares her three-step process to building relationships. Connection is different from networking. When you connect, you are intentional, you ask meaningful questions, and you listen carefully. Authentic connections not only can help us live longer; a strong social network can add 15 years to your life. Further, a connected workforce is a productive workforce.
