Publisher's Summary

World-renowned leadership expert and best-selling author John C. Maxwell says if you want to be an effective leader, you must learn how to connect with people. 

While it may seem like some folks are just born with a commanding presence that draws people in, the fact is anyone can learn to communicate in ways that consistently build powerful connections. Everyone Communicates, Few Connect, helps you succeed by revealing Maxwell’s Five Principles and Five Practices to develop this crucial skill of connecting, including: finding common ground, keeping your communication simple, capturing people's interest, inspiring people, and staying authentic in all your relationships.

Your ability to achieve results in any organization - be it a company, church, nonprofit, or even in your family - is directly tied to the leadership skills in your toolbox. Connecting is an easy-to-learn skill you can apply today in your personal, professional, and family relationships to start living your best life.

stronger than normal Maxwell

Maxwell writes well and is a master at communicating ideas to others. however, it stems from his normal messages about leadership - ideas that are already present in his other books. a bit heavy on the religion for some people.

teaching that changes lives

I have been listening and applying this book at the same time. In the process I've changed my mindset and approach to people as a result. Instead of seeing them as leeches, people who steal my, energy, I see and approach them as people of great worth. I'm genuinely seeking to add value to their lives. As a result, I'm being transformed as a leader and person. I'm developing more credibility in my relationships across the board. Great book.

Now I Know What I Was Doing Wrong!

From the moment the narrator begun, his tone was pleasant and made listening a pleasure, I just wish it would of lasted longer. I will for sure seek out any other books, audibles or online courses. What I really liked was the questions I need to ask myself before I try and connect. Excellently Book! Thank you

practical guidance on the foundation of influence

information was presented in a way so you could take action and demonstrated the principal in the book of connecting rather than speaking above the audience. Sometimes in the quest to learn the next new thing or trying to share our new idea we forget the critical importance of connecting with people.

Fascinating: "Connection"

It is incredible to hear Mr. Maxwell share his knowledge on communication, specifically on understanding the difference between telling something, engaging and effectively connecting with another human being.
Remarkable knowledge to be read or listened to over and over, so we can practice by putting it into practice since this should be a must if we want to continue on this journey of personal and professional growth.
