Insights: Creating meaningful connection.
If you could improve one thing so that other people had a better understanding of the mission you are leading, what would it be? Maybe you would work on the key messages they need to know? Maybe you would develop your skills and style as a communicator? Or perhaps you would learn more about your audience and what they need from you in order to engage at the level you would like?
Imagine the difference you could create if your message, your delivery and your understanding were completely aligned!
Dr Emma Yhnell showed us that that is exactly what happens when you combine a deeply rooted mission with the passion for honing your message to meet the needs of your audience; the honesty to not shy away from being refreshingly different; the humanity to (literally) meet people where they are; and a commitment to creating impactful change.
Looking back on our conversation, I begin by wondering what might have been different if, at an early age, our future was determined by our strengths rather than our weaknesses. I then look at our responsibility to transform knowledge into learning in a way that enables us to reach and connect with the hearts and minds of those who can truly help us in our mission to change the world.
If you’re looking to have greater influence and you are ready to create meaningful connection in your mission, this week’s Insights episode is for you.
