STEPS FROM THE STOOP: Cultivating Connection

The 3 Simple Steps for Connecting with the “Other”

In order to achieve real diversity and inclusion within our organization, we must adopt a world view that equally values all generations, cultures, and perspectives. Chris Bashinelli’s all-inclusive approach to relationship building has been cultivated for 30+ years, starting with his “Stoop” in the heart of Brooklyn, where his childhood friends shared a combined total of more than 13 nationalities. In this signature keynote, Chris drives home the ease of relationship building with a personal, yet universal method he’s applied everywhere from farming with mystics in Uganda to living with nomads in Mongolia. Audience members will learn the three essential steps from the “Stoop” which serve as the basis for profound personal transformation and deep connection with others – Awareness, Acceptance, and Courage! These steps enable people to strengthen their relationship with themselves, co-workers, family, friends – and even those with whom we have no seeming connection – be it a 600-pound Japanese sumo wrestler or our next-door neighbor. When we make that human connection and move people from the category of “them” to “us,” anything is possible.

There’s never been a more important time to richly hone the relationships that transform lives, bridge gaps, connect generations, and empowers our life experience. By opening our world view we are far more powerful than we could ever be on our own – be it the exchange of tribal knowledge between an experienced team member and a social media-savvy young employee, or the shared core values of an Oklahoma farmer and a Mongolian herdsman.

What’s surprising is that our ability to authentically connect with our clients and friends has very little to do with them, and almost everything to do with our perspective. We see the world not as it is, but as we are. The great news is that means we have the power to deepen our relationships with others at any moment; all we have to do is shift our perspective! Building better relationships doesn’t necessarily mean knowing perfectly how to bow, shake hands, or say hello in every culture; it simply means bringing an open and accepting mindset to all of our interactions.
