Host Byron White talks to Mike Stallard, co-founder and president of E Pluribus Partners. Connection Culture explores a refreshing new way of thinking about leadership, employee engagement, and organizational health. Stallard states, Connection provides a sense of well-being, reduces stress, and makes us more trusting. People who are more connected with others fare better in life than those who are less connected. Connection, because it meets our human needs, makes people more trusting, more cooperative, more empathetic, more enthusiastic, more optimistic, more energetic, more creative and better problem solvers. It creates the type of environment in which people want to help their colleagues.
