CONNECT with Lacey Nelson: Unleashing the Power of Communication and Transparency

CONNECT business model and pillars of success

Lacey developed the CONNECT model to create unity where there is division. Every encounter with another person is an opportunity to CONNECT. If you meet a stranger for five minutes or you’re speaking to your spouse, there are essential factors that you must meet in order for the interaction to be meaningful. CONNECT stands for Communication, Openness, Neutrality, Nurturing, Education, Courage, and Transparency. In each interaction, if one meets all of the pillars, the CONNECTion will be lasting. If one pillar is not met, there is a disconnect. This model can and does work for anyone and everyone. Imagine a world full of people who engage with others in such a way.
