The video “Can emotional connection happen here?”, can be found on my LinkedIn profile. Whatever we do in life, emotions, empathy brings us closer to others. This is helpful in our personal and professional life.
Have you ever wondered why you are having difficulties connecting with someone? I’ll share one possible reason that occurred with one of my clients; I’ll call him Dr. L. Dr. L. is a medical doctor in one of Toronto’s largest hospitals, and he is responsible for a team of 40 people. I had the privilege of working with Dr. L as he wanted to improve his communication and, leadership skills.
In one of our sessions, he wanted to prepare a meeting with another doctor/team member where the communication – the dialogue was difficult. During the coaching session, he came up with a solution on how to conduct the meeting. It was in fact to have this meeting in a “safe” & “nice” environment for all parties. Not in his office as he used to.
As a proposed take away, you can always ask yourself: “Can emotional connection happen here?”.

Hello! Have you ever had difficulties connecting with someone? I’ll share one possible reason that occurred with one of my clients and, I’ll call him Dr. L.
Dr. L is a medical doctor working in one of Toronto’s largest hospitals and, has a team of 40 people. The initial reason of working together is he wanted to improve his communication and leadership skills.
In one of our sessions Dr. L told me: “Hugh I would really like to use this
time together to prepare an important meeting that I’m having with him on my team members. He’s a doctor and the dialogue between both of us is
really difficult.” We used the time to prepare that meeting and he came up with different solutions on how to conduct it.
One of the solutions was to hold the meeting in a nice and safe environment for both of them, which really hadn’t happened in the past, he would always have the meetings in his office. So you’re wondering how did the meeting happen? The session after the meeting after between both of us, Dr. L told me. “Hugh thank you very much for your advice (as he was really happy with the outcome). I said you came up with the solutions on how to conduct a meeting.”
As a possible takeaway for you, you can always ask yourself: “Can emotional connection happen in this location (with this person)?” Thank you for listening and, I wish you all the best. Bye for now.
