Leadership is caught, not just taught. For years, I’ve studied the art and science of leadership– observing great leaders in action: how they behave, communicate, and build rapport.

What is rapport?

Rapport is your ability to enter someone else’s world skillfully; to make that individual feel that you understand and value them and have a strong bond.

Rapport is an important leadership tool for working effectively with others and producing desired results with other people. While every person’s background and journey are unique, we all share many common characteristics.

When you understand how people think and they feel you meet them where they are instead of judging them, you’ll be in a better position to be their partner in success.

Here’s to building better relationships with rapport!

As a master storyteller, Steve has unparalleled ability to communicate dynamic business and leadership truths through stories, anecdotes and humor.
