1. DOING ONE THING WITHOUT WAVERING

GIFTS of Connection™ don’t offer a myriad shades of success and a disconnected variety of goals. Instead, they focus on one thing and do it really well. It paves the way to a culture of transformational connection through client stories, meetings, and training development, so leaders build stronger teams and get lasting results. Its simple goal is to have the very best peacemaking language development program for all.

2. A PROGRAM FOR HUMANITY

Too often managers and leaders dread enforcements. They can already imagine the complaints flooding in, while stuck in a set of rules experiencing a drag, and a disconnection from reality. GIFTS of Connection™ serves as the groundwork to create the transformational experience you would love to go through. Based on dynamic, proven principles, all of its components are highly interactive, engaging and meaningful. GIFTS of Connection™ pass the ultimate test: people don’t crave being right while they’re in the group.

3. TIME-FRIENDLY

The people who use GIFTS of Connection™ want to declutter their busy lives. They’re over-connected, overcommitted and overwhelmed. GIFTS of Connection™ start with this: peacemaking should be an activity as natural and as constant as breathing that gets rid of time-consuming and cyclic poor performance. This approach to connecting is about creating comprehension and beauty in your stories and experiences rather than changing them. People can try less hard and have more impact.

4. ALL ABOUT DEVELOPMENT

GIFTS of Connection™ help individuals and organizations find more rewarding ways to get what they want. It’s not enough for teams to have high performers if their way of working is not sustainable and replicable. It teaches powerful method that draws upon communication studies, pedagogical findings, behavioral economics, neuroscience, psychology, anthropology, spirituality, and theology. The program is designed to cultivate personal habits that positively affect society.

5. A UNIVERSAL REFORM

Connection needs to be part of a bigger plan — market penetration, global initiative, leadership alignment— to have any real impact. I want to be a strategic contributor, not just a procurement checkbox for organizations. I’m looking to partner with clients to find the bigger game, and to make sure that what I give best contributes to that.

6. INVITATION TO LASTING JOY 

According to Brene Brown’s global research on wholehearted living, vulnerability is the birthplace of innovation, creativity and joy. While most systems’ after-training support focus on habit formation, GIFTS of Connection™ makes itself vulnerable as it seeks to transcend behavioral implications. It is neither for the hardened nor the faint of heart. It requires you to choose the value of people over process and “addition over abstraction”; it points specifically to a historical person, Jesus Christ, to help you make a sustainable impact, even on your adversaries. Although the timelessness of its story elements offers countless benefits to all, not every person who knows the GIFTS of Connection will stay open and free. The goal is to raise up lifelong peacemakers who find meaningful joy to outstrip any situation and give rise to innovation and creativity. That said, its effectiveness hinges not on itself but on capitalizing on your timely freedom of choice.
