Day 28 Connection Challenge: Check Your Body Language

Nonverbal communication makes a big difference in how people perceive and relate to you. Uncross your arms. If you keep your posture relaxed, inclusive and open, your team will respond by being more positive, aligned and productive. #beinclusive #connectionchallenge

Day 15 Connection Challenge: Have a Laugh

Sharing a laugh with your colleagues exposes vulnerability that can increase trust and subsequently improve productivity, learning and team effectiveness.  #beauthentic #beinclusive #connectionchallenge

Day 14 Connection Challenge: Seek out a Diverse Opinion

Before making a decision today, go ask the opinion of someone who is likely to have a different viewpoint. Not only does this help encourage better, more creative solutions, it helps build trust. #beinclusive #betransparent #becurious #connectionchallenge

Day 13 Connection Challenge: Don’t Jump to Solutions

In business we are often rewarded for taking decisive action. But when we keep our minds open slightly longer and ask questions to learn more, we often find we come up with better solutions. Try to pause before deciding today. #beinclusive #becurious #connectionchallenge

Day 4 Connection Challenge: Take Someone Else’s View

We all approach new situations with a perspective shaped by who we are and the experiences we have had to date. Try to deliberately look at something differently today: Take the other side of a debate or consider a situation from a new angle. #beinclusive #connectionchallenge
