How can you broaden your personal connections?

Falling into repetitive thinking patterns is normal. Challenging yourself to consider a wider range of perspectives when communicating can broaden your personal connections and community.


The brain thrives on innovative thinking. Relying on overly-familiar ideas promotes stagnation and hinders brain function. Innovative communication is not necessarily about revolutionary ideas, but about making incremental changes to profoundly affect your personal connections.


  • Listen carefully and objectively to understand other views.
  • Reflect on how your values intersect with different perspectives.
  • Integrate dynamic ideas into your points of view while staying true to your purpose.
  • Consider how you can build upon shared values to craft constructive communications.
