This dynamic program is based on the exciting discovery that a powerful catalyst for inspiring creative breakthroughs is to guide people to connect with one another first, before trying to solve a problem. When people connect, when they are on the same wavelength, attuned, and in rapport, they are much better at generating - and implementing - new ideas. This is The Art of Connection, the surprising secret of creative problem solving at work and at home. Contemporary research demonstrates that connectedness with others can also be a predictor of longevity, health, and happiness.
