John Maxwell’s Everyone Communicates, Few Connect


Course introduction

This is a John Maxwell Course conducted by certified and licensed John Maxwell Team member Ramylal Fernando, based on the book of the same title by leadership expert and award-winning and prolific author John Maxwell.

For most people, connecting with others is not a natural talent. To be successful at work, at leadership and life, the ability to connect is a critical element. The ability to connect is a skill that we must develop as much as we develop the skill of communication. Communication helps us to make sense; connection helps us to make an influence. This course will enable you to impact people you work with and influence them to reach their full potential. It will enable you to work towards a positive work culture by developing connections with your colleagues. On a personal level, you will discover the key to improve your relationships with people that matter to you.
