Carole said: “When I ended up at Stanford and became known as the queen of “Touchy Feely” I thought this is what I was put on the planet to do. I was put on the planet to create opportunities for people to learn how to connect.”

It touched me so deeply that I was excited when she accepted my invitation to come on the show and talk about the lessons behind the legendary Stanford Business School course called "Interpersonal Dynamics or Touchy Feely" for short. Carole and I built a fast friendship in the course of creating this conversation because I just finished her book "Connect - Building Exceptional Relationships with Family, Friends, and Colleagues". I am very pleased to be sharing this conversation with Carole Robin with you today.

Let's really explore "Interpersonal Dynamics or Touchy Feely" for a second, in a business school of Stanford's caliber they have found this course to be one of their most powerful and requested courses of all. When you get to listen to Carole talking about some of the lessons and the examples of what they were teaching and the impact that this work has made in others' lives I'm sure you'd like a copy of the book. But let's start with this conversation, Carole and I were super inspired by each other and I know you'll gonna take a lot away from it. Enjoy...
