Far too often, people find themselves struggling to connect with other people in the workplace. Sometimes it’s a case of a personality mismatch. Other times it can be a difference in communication styles. 

Whatever the reason, this inability to connect with others in a meaningful or productive way can cause a blockage. It can affect productivity, collaboration, and even trust if everyone is struggling to connect.
