Human beings are wired for connections. So how do we leverage our humanity to build those connections when technology seems to be pushing us in the other direction? In this episode, Steve speaks with David J.P. Fisher, Author of "Networking in the 21st Century" and President of RockStar Consulting, about the importance of storytelling, building trust, and the impact of technology on sales. The conversation touches on the psychology of human connection, the fear of rejection, and what it means to leverage your humanity.
