Click: The Magic of Instant Connections
March 8, 2011 1 Comment
Have you ever wondered why? And, would you like to know the factors that accelerate the process of connecting with others?
Read the book, Click: The Magic of Instant Connections by brothers Ori and Rom Brafman.
I’m half way through the book right now, and coincidentally noticed a review of the book in a Psychology Today magazine that I picked up from the library. The reviewer neatly summarizes the 5 catalysts for connection (vulnerability, proximity, resonance, similarity and shared community):
As I am reading the book, which although high on concept and evidence is low on practical application (so far), I keep thinking about how I can apply this in my own personal and business life. I recently updated my website’s “About Diane” page to show a more vulnerable, authentic me. Does this help you click with me? Would it increase or decrease the likelihood that you would want me to speak to your organization?
What is your experience in “clicking” with others?
