Leadership Insights #19: The Two Ingredients for Meaningful Connection

Published 3 months ago • 3 min read

Meaningful connections are sooooo important!!! Last week, I reconnected with a group of colleagues and friends that I have known for 10-20 years! It had been a while since we had all been together because of COVID, business, and travel, and we were all overwhelmed by how special it was! So much joy!!!

We reflected on why this particular group from Shire was so close, and we realized it was because we had gone through so many ups and downs together both in business and in life. We stepped into leadership roles around the same time, made mistakes together, and learned to lean on each other. We weren't "out for ourselves." We helped each other when we lost loved ones. The company culture really enabled us to rally for the whole team. To their credit, they were intentional about hiring authentic people who valued personal growth and "we vs. me."

If you have been feeling isolated or alone, I'd encourage you to reach out to your community - whether they are in your hometown or spread out across the world. Initiate a time to reunite in person or over zoom, and set the stage for honest conversations, laughter, and even tears. We need these connections for our own health and happiness!! And they tend to have a ripple effect that continues spreading even after they are over.

Women of the Summit is an incredible place to start meeting new people in Summit County, CO. It was an honor to be a presenter at their Career Camp last weekend, and I look forward to growing meaningful connections with all those I met.

I hope you enjoy my latest article below on the Two Ingredients For Meaningful Connection, and sign up for our next event, Awaken Your Potential: Discovering Your Enneagram Personality Type. It will be another awesome night of meaningful connection!

The Two Ingredients for Meaningful Connection - The past few weeks have taught me a lot about the value of experiencing meaningful connections. To enjoy these connections, we need to really be present in the moment, be honest with others, and true to ourselves. Facing fears and tough times, like missing my dad and starting my own business, have shown me how important it is to stay true to what I value. I’ve deliberately chosen to value growing a little each day, and not just doing things to impress others. Oftentimes, the stress, negativity, shame and judgment from others can get the best of us and cause us to turn away from how we really feel or want to act...

A big shout-out to Nikola Jokić of the Denver Nuggets; this man absolutely fascinates me. There’s something about the way he behaves on and off the court that I deeply admire and respect. Watching him during interviews, I find myself completely engaged, absorbing every single word he says. Keep in mind, he speaks very few words, and that’s one of the things I respect so much about him as a player and a leader. I have become a basketball fan because of the Denver Nuggets. I admire how true...

I have not been out much over the last few weeks, other than to physical therapy appointments, but I am very grateful to live in such a beautiful place. Pictured above is an unfiltered sunset view from my bedroom which has become a sanctuary for healing, reading, and writing. I know that the renewed strength I desire for my knee and body in the future is contingent on my discipline and consistency today. PT and rest are vital. There are many days when I'm tempted to push ahead with activity...
