"Connection is the Antidote" introduces a concept that allows you to tap into your innate ability to connect with others and complete important projects with the support of your whole team. When you leverage your ability to connect with your team, you will be able to overcome many of the issues that can arise from the human elements that can derail or slow a project's progress. I will give you two methods that you can use immediately to improve the acceptance and vision of the project you are managing. After all, a project manager needs more than a technical understanding of project management to succeed because a successful project often comes down to how well you work with others.
