Seven Things Leaders Can Learn from Bill Clinton About Connecting with People

Seven Things Leaders Can Learn from Bill Clinton About Connecting with People | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

Most Presidents are more popular out of office than in. In Clinton’s case, he likely gets a lot of credit for the work he’s doing through his Foundation. He also does a lot of public appearances and is a master communicator and connector.

Earlier this week, I got to see exactly how much of a master he is when President Clinton spoke to a packed house for the Los Angeles World Affairs Council. For just under 90 minutes, Clinton held an audience of 1,500 people rapt as he answered questions on everything from Ebola to education to Putin to what his most favorite thing was about being President (that last question was submitted by the moderator’s 4th grade son).

There were a lot of things I noticed Clinton doing that makes him world class at connecting with an audience. There were a lot of lessons that leaders can use to connect with their people. Here are seven of them:

President Clinton would be an awesome contestant on Jeopardy. No matter what topic came up in the Q&A, Clinton had an informed point of view backed up with stats and specifics. People are much more likely to listen to and connect with leaders who are well informed...

Annette Schmeling's curator insight, March 4, 2013 11:29 AM

Contemplative Dialogue is a way of being that asks that we take a long and loving look at the real. Chris Argyris, Peter Senge, et.al., have given us the Ladder of Inference, and other tools, to be awake and aware and to picture the dignity and worth of each person. Our growth is gauged entirely by our capacity to love and be loved.

As Susan states in this article, "Relationships are built based on respect, growth, cooperation and communication." She also highlights the value of compassion and truth. The emotional connection, and our willingness to be present to the whole person, affirms the sacred worth and value of each and every person.
