Sometimes it can be tempting to keep your head down and just get the work done, especially with steadily increasing workloads. However, actually connecting with other human beings is crucial to our wellness and ability to perform. In his new book Connection Culture, Michael Lee Stallard talks about how lately we’re less connected than ever and how to get some of that crucial connection time back.
Michael is the co-founder and president of E Pluribus Partners. He is the author of Fired Up or Burned Out: How to Reignite Your Team’s Passion, Creativity and Productivity and Connection Culture: The Competitive Advantage of Shared identity, Empathy and Understanding at Work, a contributor to other books including What Managers Say, What Employees Hear: Connecting With Your Front Line (So They’ll Connect with Customers) and The ASTD Management Development Handbook.
