There is one thing that stands between a person and success–it is connection. The course text, Everyone Communicates: Few Connect, written by New York Times bestselling author and world-renowned leadership expert, John C. Maxwell, teaches you how to make every communication an opportunity for a powerful connection.

John C. Maxwell, says if you want to succeed, you must learn how to connect with people. While it may seem that some are just born with this ability, the fact is that anyone can learn how to make every communication an opportunity for a powerful connection. The author shares the Five Principles and Five Practices to develop the crucial skill of connecting including:

  • Finding common ground
  • Keeping your communication simple
  • Capturing people's interest
  • Inspiring people
  • Staying authentic in all your relationships

Upon completion of this program you will be able to answer these questions:

  • Why is connection important in building relationships and what are characteristics and components of connection?
  • In what ways is energy necessary to improve connections with others?
  • What are the factors that make people listen to us, the barriers to connection and communication, and the principles for creating a common ground mindset?
  • Which techniques can be used for simple and clear communications, and to create an interesting experience for my audience?
  • How can I express my authentic self, allowing others to know my expectations, see my convictions, credibility, and character?
  • How do I build trust in relationships?

With Ethics for Communication & Connection you'll learn the principles and practices to develop the crucial skill of connecting with everyone, not just your clients.

Ethics for Communication and Connection was fantastic. The main textbook was very well written and insightful. I was able to immediately implement the principles in my practice and in my class lectures, as well as daily life. I'm really grateful that this was an option and I got to learn this material. Thanks so much!

Good Course I really did enjoy it.

Tammy Koncitik, BCTMB

This course on communication/ethics is an excellent curriculum to be included for all massage schools. It is an important concept for young people and/or any new therapist to enhance their effectiveness for their career. I have mentored several beginning therapists and this book would have been great for "required" reading.
