Why do you want to connect with people anyway? Well, for many reasons not the least of which it makes life so much more interesting. If you are the type of person who wishes that you could interact better with people, who sees others interacting in social settings that are attractive to you, then this is for you. Connecting and interacting is a gift for some. Having an outgoing nature and a gift for gab comes easy for many people and they can use this gift to their advantage.
If you don't have it, you can acquire some degree of skill interacting and networking if you choose to work at it. Another great audio program that I have listened to repeatedly is by author and trainer Leil Lownes. 62 Tips on Connecting With Anyone is full of great suggestions on how you can improve your interpersonal skills and begin connecting with other people in a very positive way right away. However, this type of training is again part of your lifelong educational process. Half of the battle is admiting that you need help in this area. The other half is getting that help.
In this program, Lownes offers many suggestions that apply to a wide variety of settings and situations for connecting with people. Again, as a student of this program, one must be very open to suggestions that appear to be a bit uncomfortable.
As I have mentioned in previous posts, the NAHAD Convention is a great place to make connections as is the NFPA. In June, we offer our advertisers and readers a place to connect and that is the Fluid Power Technical Conference.
