In this time of technological sophistication, we need to be reminded that the most effective type of contact is direct with other people. Real human connections remain the most important at work. The most important component in building effective, high-performing teams that deliver the best outcome possible is the human connection.
Connected team members, drive collaboration, nurture healthy working relationships, and promote knowledge-sharing. The more connected we are as colleagues, the more efficient our workplace will be. Therefore, connecting with team members, especially across departmental lines, is important to the success of any business.
Also worth considering is that people with good connections are happier, less stressed, and more engaged at work. Consider engaging in activities where it can foster human connections. That these people are genuinely connected not as an employee but as humans. There are activities outside work that they can engage in together have fun and create bonds. After all, humans are hard-wired to connect with one another, whether it’s in our personal lives or the workplace.
