Tips for Meaningfully Connecting During Holidays

Post Date: November 23rd, 2011

Can you believe we are already into the holiday season?  I have no idea where the year has gone! 

This time of year provides many opportunities for visiting with family and friends not often seen throughout the year.  To deepen those relationships, instead of talking about the 'weather', consider what open-ended questions you might ask to learn what is most important to them right now, as it may have changed since you last spoke. 

  What is catching their attention?  

  What are they looking forward to?  

  What are they proud of having accomplished during this past year? 

Consider sharing what you’re excited about whether it pertains to work, a hobby or with family.  What have you learned recently, and could share, that they may find intriguing or useful?  

Please share your tips for making meaningful connections! 


In the spirit of Thanksgiving, I am particularly thankful for the privilege of working with bright, thoughtful, forward moving clients. One of the great pleasures in my life is when a client has a breakthrough insight or accomplishment.  

I wish you a wonderful Thanksgiving and holiday season filled with many meaningful moments. 

To your success, 

Gwyneth Anne
