True connection requires authenticity, vulnerability and acceptance
It starts by strengthening the connection between the intelligences of your head, heart and gut (1). Also, by strengthening the connection between your thoughts, feelings and physical being. And by having a strong connection with your purpose in life, your values and your vision – knowing and feeling what it is that matters most to you.
Lack of connection with oneself is one of the reasons why stress and burnout complaints are so high these days. It seems that we've lost touch with ourselves and with the meaning in our work. (2) May be the time is ripe to reconnect to what matters
(1) Recent neuroscience findings show that we have complex, functional neural networks—or brains—in both heart and gut (Researched by The HeartMath Institute, www.heartmath.org on the heart & neurobiologist Dr. Michael Gershon on the gut)
(2) One in seven Dutch employees suffers from burn-out complaints such as fatigue and emotional exhaustion (CBS/TNO 2015)
That's where the magic happens!
Only when you increase your self-awareness are you able to truly connect with others. And that is where the magic happens.
Brené Brown, Research Professor at the University of Houston and author of three no.1 New York Times bestsellers, defines connection as "the energy that exists between people when they feel seen, heard, and valued; when they can give and receive without judgment; and when they derive sustenance and strength from the relationship." And let's face it, when this energy is present in a relationship or a team, together you can move mountains and accomplish great results!
