We all communicate, but very few people actually connect.
Have you ever wondered why certain people flourish in their jobs, organizations or ministries while you might feel stagnant or stuck? Usually the problem is not that what you have to offer is inferior or of less value; the problem is how you connect. How are you connecting and communicating with others to get the results you desire?
In John C. Maxwell's book, Everyone Communicates, Few Connect, John gives five principles and five practices for breaking the invisible barrier to leadership and personal success.
He believes that a person's ability to create change and get results in any organization - be it a company, church, nonprofit, or even a family - is directly tied to effective communication. In other words, do your words make a difference? Do you get through to others?
Our passion for Girlfriendit is fueled by rallying others to do the remarkable. One way to add value and make an impact on women is through connecting. Connecting can make you or break you. Sure you can do a great job, and yes, you can work hard. But to truly make an impact on others and the kingdom, you need to learn how to really communicate.
Listen in as we interview Gillian Marchenko. Gillian writes and speaks to connect with other women about real life motherhood, stumbling faith, Down's syndrome, adoption, grace and a whole lot more. Her writing has been featured in MomSense Magazine, EFCA Today, Gifted for Leadership, Connections Magazine, Today's Christian Woman, and more.
