- One of the most important skills today … or need to influence others over whom you have no authority, … being able to connect with people is essential. … As human beings, we're more open to collaborating … and being influenced by those we trust. … Making a trusted connection with others can be hard … when we see ourselves as very different from them. … For example, we may think. … Oh, John is so hard to work with, … because he's lazy. … That's okay. … and take ownership of the thoughts we have about John. … When are thoughts are full of what's wrong with John, … it's pretty hard to establish … a trusting relationship with him. … The bad news is, we have very little control over John. … to get curious about our own perspective about him. … and shift our perspective on the people … we don't like in our workplace. … John may not become our best friend, … but we can find a way to accept him just as he is, … influence, and collaborate with him. … and take responsibility for growing trust …
