Back to McKinsey quote of the day

“I just encourage you to think about building that human connection before you think about how you might advance someone's agenda. And get to know them a little bit and show yourself a little bit before you worry about proving yourself to them. And also, remember that spontaneous interactions can sometimes be the best ones.”
