    Morning General Session - Leadership: How to Bridge the Communication Gap
    Only one thing stands between you and success. It isn't experience. It isn't talent. It is not enough just to work hard. It is not enough to do a great job.

    If you want to succeed, you must learn how to connect with people. And while it may seem like some people are just born with it, the fact is anyone can learn how to make every communication an opportunity for a powerful connection.

    In Everyone Communicates, Few Connect John C. Maxwell reveals how to identify with people and relate to others in a way that increases your influence with them. The ability to connect with others is a major determining factor in reaching your full potential. It's no secret; Our job is to bring clarity to a subject, not complexity.

    When you make a commitment, you create hope.
    When you keep a commitment, you create trust.
