Connecting Goes Beyond Words

If you want to be successful in connecting with people, you need to make sure your communication goes beyond words, by connecting on four levels.

  • Visually: You have seven seconds to make the right first impression.
  • Intellectually: To connect with people intellectually you must know two things: your subject and yourself.
  • Emotionally: People may hear your words but they feel your attitude.
  • Verbally: Words are the currency of ideas and have the power to change the world.
