Connecting with Empathy: 7 Steps to Improve  

Your Communication and Teamwork Skills

Over the years, I have seen too many business opportunities lead to NO RESULTS due to the difficulties in the cultural or communication understanding between the people and companies involved in these opportunities.  

So how can you overcome some of these challenges in communicating and negotiating with people with a different mindset, culture, or work skills and experiences?

In a professional business environment, people are more likely to respond to you and maintain an effective professional relationship if you follow some business behaviors identified as best practices in the business world.  If you can connect with them on a human level, by generating empathy in these professional interactions, your chance for success increases significantly.

By contacting new clients or partners through online meetings or in person, most businesspeople will respond to you based on how you interact with them, or what you say in the first interaction.

I teach businesspeople and other professionals to improve their communication effectiveness with new clients and partners by presenting practical material and real-life examples that I use in my business so that they can feel more confident and comfortable with their communication efforts in an online and offline (in-person) world.

With 22 years working on international projects and business opportunities all over the world, all the resources I develop and share with you are based on my experiences working with people and companies of diverse cultures, mentalities, and skills.  

This will help you avoid the mistakes I’ve already made and only focus on what has led to results. 

Some of the steps presented in more detail in this guide include:     

- Breaking the Ice 
- Avoid Stereotypes  
- Establish Common Interests Early      
- Highlight Positive Realities
