We live in a world that places a high value on connection. Especially in the work world – some believe your network is everything. There is truth in this, but not the whole truth. What is your preference? How much interpersonal connection works for you?
Here are some things to consider in answering these two questions:
• Does interaction with others energize or deplete you?
• How much value does your workplace put on interpersonal connection and communication?
• In your workplace’s culture, does connection create positive or negative outcomes?
• How have interpersonal connections and communication propelled your career so far?
We are in this together for sure. How together is your choice!
