Self-isolation can be difficult. If you read any of the advice about how to best deal with isolation – which comes from astronauts, submariners and others – you will come across some of the same bits of advice. These include maintaining a routine and staying physically active. However, there is one bit of advice that is crucial but that we all find very challenging – even before the coronavirus pandemic. That is maintaining and creating a meaningful connection with others.
However, as you will hear, now is a great time to do just that. My guest in this episode is Georgie Nightingall. Georgie is the founder of Trigger Conversations, a business that is all about helping individuals and organisations engineer meaningful and stimulating conversations so that they happen more often. Since its launch in October 2016, they have stimulated 5000+ meaningful conversations between strangers and held over 8- events. Georgie has given a TedX talk on this topic and trained numerous organisations.
In this episode, she shares a number of useful tips and tools that we all need right now to take advantage of an opportunity to connect and re-connect with others. And as you will also hear, that starts by embracing the uncertainty that an interaction with another human being can bring. This was a fun, inspiring and very insightful conversation!
