Relationships are often illustrated as circles.

There may be your “inner circle” of friends, family, supporters, and advisors, and those outside your core inner circle who are part of a bigger community.

There are also those you collaborate with on a daily basis who, together, provide a cycle of growth and productivity: you as the leader, your mentors, your team, and your mentees. This circle exemplifies the inter-connection of you to others, and every segment matters.

In these times, it is more important than ever to be intentional about creating and preserving your core inner circle, your extended circle, and your circle of growth and productivity. Otherwise, you will experience disconnect. With disconnect comes a host of physical, mental, relational, societal, and vocational issues. Connection is the fabric of society.

How can you expand your circle of influence?

The fact is it won’t just happen. You must intentionally make connections. If you need to grow your influence and you want to make a difference, make connections.

This article is a great place to start. Here, you’ll learn five ways you can expand your circle. Pick one today and apply it. You’ll be glad you did!
