Connecting as a state of being
From skilfulness to authenticity
In business we adopted certain skills, which we believe will bring us money and power, success and fame or simply security. Often those ambitions and motivations reflects in our communication in the form of repetitiveness, manipulating, dependency on other’s people opinion and approval, shortsightedness, pushing, creating image and acting it etc. The result is division, covered with “productive” smiles and skillfully acted confidence.
We are all connected constantly. This is having an enormous impact on us no matter how the connection looks like (direct or not that obvious). It is like the tree, which “drinks” from the river with its roots and “feeds” form the sun with its leaves. Knowing about our interconnectedness has nothing to do with understanding it and actually integrate it in everyday life. Our ways to communicate with others are always a precise picture of how deep we understand connecting.
Real connecting skills are states of presence, integrity and authenticity. They bring wealth, which no ambition can ever fulfill.
Developing your real connecting skills means being constantly aware how do you communicate with others. Then your pitching and business conversations will be effortless, mature and connected with yourself and others.
