When you are searching for a Program for strengthening a Company from the inside out, "The Power of Being Connected" has fast become one of Richards most requested programs. The Program begins with Richard taking 5 words from his Dictionary of Human Behavior and using them to lay the foundation for building effective communication – Change, Oneness, Respect, Reputation and Integrity. Ask most, "what is the #1 internal issue," and they will tell you "a lack of effective communication." As Richard says, "The lack of effective communication is the result of three things – the lack of a common purpose, the lack of a common agenda and the lack of a common commitment. Without these three there is only internal confusion, which paralyzes the company." Without a "common purpose" there is no defined direction; without a "common agenda" everyone is free to do their own thing and without a "common commitment" there is no glue to hold the group together where each knows the others have their back. Without these three connected there is no harmony where individuals become bigger than their individual presence. The driving force in any organization should be to "create a presence that has presence when they are not present." "The Power of Being Connected" takes the concept of teamwork to the creation of a partnership, where there is the power to move forward toward greatness.
