Connecting people a must have skill

“You can’t move people to action unless you first move them with emotion- the heart comes before the head.” – John Maxwell

Today I learned about connecting with people especially if you want to be a great leader. The connection should start with me and will have to be maintained by me. I should see my followers as friends with unique and different personalities. Even if I am the boss my mindset should be is to initiate to communicate with them in a personal level.
I experience this situation often when I can’t make people around me do the things I want them to do. I guess adding value to them is one of ways but connecting with them had some important impact to them as well. I just recently learned this thing and now connecting with them in personal level. These things made our relationship stronger and influence easier.
We have to remember few things to maintain these things- like be confident, sincere and open
Do you experience it? (That my heart should start to connect with there hearts before I can lead them effectively).
