LiNK: The Fascinating Ways Our
          Minds Connect

Released in March of 2012

The majority of us struggle at times with how best to connect our minds with others. I contend that the reason these disconnects often occur is we're ignoring how the human brain is wired to link one mind to another. This often results in diminished outcomes–both personally and professionally. In this thought-provoking book, I examined over 80 years of neuroscience and behavioral psychology research in order to find the answers as to what we can do to link our minds more effectively. 

I believe that specific aspects of mind-to-mind linking: Listening with Attentiveness, Involving every participant's perspective, Noticing the nonverbal blinkers we signal, and expanding knowledge from person to person–bolters results. LiNK will show you how these connection mechanisms can enable individuals and organizations to become high performers. Through riveting stories, interviews with intriguing people and visits to high-flying organizations; LiNK will take you on a journey that will improve your interaction, influence and impact with those around you.

Tethered: Reclaiming Human Interaction 
                  In a Mobile Device Addicted World 
          

To Be Released in June of 2017

   
An addiction of parabolic proportions is sweeping across our globe. Age, gender, religion or economic status matter little. Why? Because the human brain succumbs to the addiction process in much the same way. Its resulted in people becoming as Einstein prophetically predicted when he stated; "I fear the day when technology will surpass our human interaction. We will then have a generation of idiots." Want proof? 

Look around you.

In the space of two hours on a single day recently, 4 out of 5 people I came in contact with were staring at the screen of their phones. Whether in restaurants, at the gym, at the park, or while riding bicycles, all were disconnected from the world around them. Immersed in the apps and virtual world of their electronic leashes. This tethering is impacting relational competence across all spectrums: business, academia and interpersonally. Tethered will take the reader on a journey into how this all got started, what socio-economic impacts can be expected and how we can reclaim genuine human interaction. 

Tethered will be available from Barnes & Noble in both Nook and paperback.

Tethered will be available from Amazon in both Kindle and paperback.
