Find common ground, keep the communication simple, capture people's interest, inspire people, and stay authentic in all of your relationships are some of his main points he discusses, which, although may not be new and groundbreaking, are worth re-investigating and bringing to the forfront of our minds because it can make a significant difference in how we handle ALL of our interactions.
