A genuine European ⇆ American
A great talk with David Brower that actually left me impressed with his sense of adventure and courage in going someplace completely different from everything he's used to. That took quite a lot from a fresh foreign graduate off to France (I can't complain about the choice of place though ;)
David gave insights on the importance of human connection. In organizations where people may seen cold and almost impersonal in interacting with others, David showed me that human connection - actual human engagement (not on social media mind you :) is still the best way to experience humanity.
By which leaders should also connect with their team to bring out the best in them.
how are you connecting with people?
Great takeaways from David:
- There's so many ways to experience life
- Why connecting with people is the key
- Show courage & kindness
- Unbox your emotions
- Be open to diversity to appreciate others
- Create human connection - that is when magic happens!
