There are many reasons for making contact with people but today let’s explore the idea of reaching out to reconnect.
Of course, it is wise to evaluate and be clear about why we want to get in contact with folk who have, for whatever reason, moved out of our immediate circle of acquaintances. And if the conversation restarts, what will be different this time around?
With these initial points examined and provided all the boxes have been ticked, we can begin the process of reaching out to reconnect.
Reaching out to reconnect suggests it feels right to re-establish an old working relationship or at least break the silence to say hello. If the rapport was more one of friendship, reaching out to reconnect might be a case of catching up with events and news concerning family and mutual friends.
One important aspect of reaching out to reconnect is that of ‘making the effort’. Action in this instance – should that be ‘every’ instance? – cannot be substituted by good intentions.
