This Mastermind series meets live virtually (2 hrs.) for 3 sessions (6 contact hours) and is for those individuals that want to learn how to truly connect with others when communicating.

According to Harvard Business Review:

The #1 criteria for advancement and promotion for professionals is an ability to communicate effectively.

People who connect with others have better relationships, experience less conflict, and get more things done than those who do not connect.

During this series, you learn and discuss five principles and corresponding practices that are foundational for understanding how to connect with people. Participants will engage in guided discussions and share ideas and reflections from own experiences.

Each participant will receive John Maxwell’s book: Everyone Communicates, Few Connect.


  • Discuss the five foundational principles of connecting.
