Lacey developed the CONNECT model to embrace all the words and actions every human being needs. Whether you are the CEO of a major company, an employee, a parent, a child, or anything in between, we must CONNECT. Communication, openness, neutrality, nurturing, education, courage, and transparency is needed on every side and by everyone to create the unity we so very much need.
