Audio Interview with Dr. Edward Hallowell on the Power of Connection

Our culture and our teams are focused on achievement. 

But it's not our accomplishments that sustain us either individually or as a team. 

What sustains us is the connections we make along the way.

Edward_hallowell Dr. Edward Hallowell has authored a book entitled "Connect - The Twelve Vital Ties That Open Your Heart, Lengthen Your Life, and Deepen Your Soul" which addresses the power of connections.  If you work with teams then this book is a must read.

Connections are the feelings of being part of something that matters - - something larger than ourselves.  When team members feel connected you tap into their inspiration which is TEN times more sustainable than constantly motivating your team (motivation is an external force and inspiration is an internal force).

In this interview you'll hear Hallowell, a noted Harvard psychiatrist, outline the steps we can take to make or reaffirm the connections that nourish the hungry heart (and the hungry team).
