Communicate to Connect
It’s fair to say Christopher Jones-Warner had us at hello! Royal London kindly hosted Christopher’s interactive ‘Communicate to Connect’ seminar where he took us beyond the usual advice of making eye contact and giving a robust handshake. Instead, he helped us understand what really occurs in the brain when you engage with others in these ways and that the secret to building trust in any relationship is really focusing one’s attention on others during such interactions.
The audience were encouraged to step outside of their comfort zone during activities that focused on making introductions and maintaining eye contact. And the power of a simple ‘hello’, pitched right, is certainly a lesson all attendees took away from this enjoyable evening.
