A critical part of becoming an effective leader is learning how to connect with others. We must connect with others before we can lead them. Often, leaders are hindered when they don’t listen to the people around them or don’t provide encouragement along. This can destroy what little trust they had.

In The Art of Connecting With Others, Dr. Tim Elmore aims to equip students with the wisdom to create healthy relationships, listen respectfully, encourage those around them, and effectively handle criticism. Through thirteen memorable images — each with a series of engaging stories, self-assessment questions, and thought-provoking discussion topics — students learn and internalize important principles on connecting with others that will help guide them as they step into college or their careers.

The Art of Connecting With Others covers important topics such as:

  • Listening
