    There isn’t one question, desire or concern that Connect First leaves unanswered in the search to create deeper meaning in all you do, and especially around your job and your work relationships.

    With 52 easy steps (some you haven’t thought of, some you just need a reminder of…) Katzman wrote a book that should be required reading for every new hire (no matter the industry), any person at the (perceived) end of their career and every person thinking, “what do I want to be when I grow up?” no

    Excellent must read top choice !! Witty wise and trustworthy compilation of research on best practices for how to create thriving cultures at work and home. The format of 52 short chapters is not only succinct, but appeals to how we read now. Whether you are new in the marketplace or in the C Suite, this book will enhance your efficacy and help you be a better leader and human being in the Digital Age!

    Dr. Katzman's book is a guide to straightforward, doable actions each of us can take right now to achieve better results in our professional lives. Although the book was written from the perspective of the workplace, the same recommendations can be used to achieve similar improvements in our personal lives. Excellent book. Immediate help.

    Amazing in both its content and its process, I was able to apply several of Dr. Katzman's 52 recommendations immediately, resulting in positive feedback from my staff and colleagues! This book was also very helpful in guiding me through a successful conflict resolution concerning a lingering work space issue, highly encourage managers and leaders, both corporate as well as NGO, to read this book.

    I found this book easy to read and navigate. But don’t be misled by its pragmatism - this book contains deep wisdom about getting along with other people. In today’s turbulent world of global challenges, where the solutions are global and collaborative, we need this wisdom!
