John Maxwell, a very prolific writer on leadership, is the author of our Tuesday Reading for today: “Influence: Connecting with People”.
Maxwell’s thesis is straightforward; ... “until leaders learn the art of connection, their influence remains minimal.” To help us make connections, he offers eight practical steps:
1. Don’t take people for granted.
2. Possess a difference-maker mindset.
3. Initiate movement toward people; take the first step.
