Such a great question, especially given my business name, but one that I’ve not fully explored in great depth, funnily enough, until now! Yet this simple question has given me so much more insight into the passion and vision of Cultivate Connections. It’s true what they say; sometimes it’s the simple things….
Here is what I discovered by asking the question:
“Connection is the energy that is created between people when they feel seen, heard and valued” – Brene Browm
“What we are all striving for is authenticity, a spirit to spirit connection” – Oprah Winfrey
“Connection is bringing a value, emotion or quality to the surface and allowing it to create a “connection” with another, others or something of similar value, emotion or quality” – Elizabeth Ellames, Living Attributes
“Connection is when your energy and that of another(s) resonate enabling communication that is in rhythm with one another and has the ability to be a resounding influence on their situation, surrounds and other energies” – Alison Rogers, Pulse Advertising
“Connection is being present in the moment and being real enough to enter your heart space and express and receive communication from that place – a very powerful ingredient for unity” – Cherie Rowett, Heart Choice Enterprises
“Connection is sharing resonance…being in alignment with similar visions and goals and above all a Heart Connection” – Myriam Sampson, The H’Art of Living
Even Dictionary.com provided some valuable insight:
- The act or state of connecting “The connection between cause and effect”
- Association; relationship: “the connection between crime and poverty”
- Anything that connects, joins or relates; link or bond
- A circle of friends or associates or a member of such a circle
- Association with or development of something observed, imagined, discussed, etc “I have a few thoughts in connection with your last remark”
- A source of supply for goods, material, etc.,
- A channel of communication.
Upon reflection, all I can say is that I certainly chose the right name for a business that promotes Active Team Building. Connection is what builds relationship and creates trust between people to enable collaboration, contribution and the co-creation of quality solutions. So next time you are collaborating or working in a Team, consider the CONNECTION;
Is the CONNECTION
- Heart to heart;
- Fully present in the moment and
- Adding value?
Until next time, stay connected and as promised, stay tuned for opportunities to connect and collaborate in Brazil…
