Building Connections Builds Confidence

Thank you to our guest author, Ted Waz, CEO of The Opinion Economy Inc.

Building connections between people is what being “Human” is all about – I am wrapping up a micro-mission to The Joseph School in Cabaret, Haiti. I have met more than 120 students, families, staff. As I travelled across the villages and hamlets that make up Cabaret, Haiti, I found a devastated geography and economic landscape, and a sense of hopelessness.

At the same-time, just as the sun breaks through the darkness of night, I find leaders of all ages, who want the skills that lead to growth & development, which builds confidence, and the ability to see possibilities, to build alliances of mutual benefit, to raise up a school, a village, a city, and ultimately a nation. The Joseph School is an adventure not for the faint of heart, but rather for those who dare to dream beyond their immediate sense of self, who can embrace that the grace we need is as simple a neighbor, next door, across town and yes even from another country sharing a little time, talent, and treasure.
