How To Build Relationships & Network The Right Way: The Connection Codes

We all thrive on meaningful relationships in our lives. Equally important is cultivating genuine connections and navigating social networks effectively. A few years ago, I had the privilege of meeting a couple who excel in teaching precisely these skills: Dr. Glen and Phyllis Hill.

Understanding Identity and Relational Connections

Identity is a term frequently tossed around, yet its true significance often eludes many in our daily lives. I recently had the opportunity to sit down with The Connection Codes, founders Dr. Glen and Phyllis Hill, and their message resonates powerfully:

“Humans are inherently wired for relational connections with one another. Unfortunately, this wiring often becomes disrupted and requires reactivation. However, this process isn’t about learning something new; it’s about relearning what was once innate—our birth language. The Connection Codes are the blueprint and tools for nurturing the relational connections we all yearn for. They embody over three decades of research, education, and real-world experience, drawing from centuries of accumulated insights and wisdom. These codes aren’t merely conceptual; they are experiential, with their potency lying not in mere knowledge but in the quality of relational interactions they facilitate.”

The Urgency of Identity

They say identity stands out as one of our most urgent needs. It’s remarkable how swiftly we start feeling adrift without a sense of identity, often within just 20 to 30 seconds. Consider our everyday interactions; when someone fails to acknowledge us, questions about our worth and significance immediately surface: “Do I matter? Do I exist? Do I matter to you?” These internal inquiries are universal. A poignant example dates back to the 1970s, with the ‘still face experiment.’ In this study, a one-year-old confronted with a blank, unresponsive expression from their mother quickly became distressed, sensing a loss of connection and identity. This underscores a fundamental aspect of our human condition—we thrive in relationships, beginning with our familial bonds, where we first gauge our sense of worth. Failure to find validation in these formative years can lead to a persistent sense of identity deficiency into adulthood.

Challenges for Artists and Creatives

For artists and creatives, the struggle for identity can be particularly acute. Repeated rejections, unmet expectations, and the relentless pursuit of validation can plunge individuals into deep despair, feeling invisible and insignificant. Yet, there is hope in our capacity to energize and uplift one another. Rather than withholding acknowledgment due to our perceived deficiencies, we can learn to see and validate others truly. The journey of creativity often begins with a fervent passion fueled by affirmation. Yet, the transition into a career can bring about supply and demand challenges compounded by the harsh realities of industry rejection. Many find themselves battling their sense of identity.

Many grapple with deep-seated feelings of invisibility. However, this state of being isn’t where we should resign ourselves. There exists a pathway to not only see others but also to embrace being seen. While self-discovery remains an ongoing journey, The Connection Codes offer tangible tools for daily use, providing practical solutions for navigating the complexities of human connection.

The Transformative Power of Connection

In essence, the pursuit of identity and validation is a shared human experience intricately tied to our innate desire for connection. We can transform lives and foster a more compassionate, interconnected world by recognizing and affirming each other’s worth.
