Connecting to Lead and the ROR: Return On Relationships (Part II) with Sabrina Shafer

Connecting to Lead and the ROR: Return On Relationships (Part II) with Roxanne Derhodge and Sabrina Shafer

Quote: “I think as a leader, the best thing you can do is create safe boundaries and a vision for your team. The second part is live it. I think that’s the part that builds trust. You can paint a beautiful vision, but if you don’t follow through, you’re only halfway there, at best.” Sabrina Shafer

Human connection is a deep bond that’s formed between people when they feel seen and valued. During an authentic human connection, people exchange positive energy with one another and build trust. On this episode of Authentic Living with Roxanne, we’re happy to welcome Sabrina Shafer to share her unique perspective on why creating connections with others is essential to business and leadership.

This was such a great interview packed with so much inspirational information that we decided to turn it into a 2-part series. Here’s the link to Part 1

Sabrina has dedicated her life to understanding how people learn, and to helping people achieve optimal success through research-based action. With a background in behavioural analysis, business, and digital transformation, she helps organizations see enablement and strategy differently.
