Suzie's Recap of Eric's comments about Relational Presence: 

  • Eric reminds us to think about how we are relating to people, & that how we are being with people matters more that the words and content we use, those things are not what people remember, and by themselves are not what make people want to work for you and with you…

AWESOME Eric Quotes:

  • "Sometimes the most influence you can have is when you invite people into the conversation."
  • "Your presence really matters."
  • "Be fully present."
  • "Speak from your heart, not just from your mind."
  • "Words are just a small part of how we express ourselves."
  • "The best way to engage with people is to be real with others and relate-able."
  • "The most powerful way to connect with someone is to just be yourself."
  • "Be yourself in every interaction."
  • "Be aware of how you are being with people."
