THE CHEMISTRY
OF HUMAN CONNECTION

Battle-tested conversation techniques, non-verbal behaviours, rules-of-thumb and visual mental models organised into small elements to help you connect and upgrade your communication behaviours with Micro-Habits.

HOW IT WORKS

5 steps
✅ Mission Icon S

mission

Green Elephants’ mission is to unleash human potential for collaboration through conscious communication.

You have most likely heard people say sentences like “We felt really connected. We had good chemistry!”  to describe how harmoniously people get along. Green Elephant was born out of a relentless curiosity about what makes that chemistry work. The creative research question behind Green Elephant’s mission is: 

 

“How might we empower change-makers with the most practical knowledge about human-to-human connection?”

Small Log

How do I use these resources?

That depends on the resource itself. Some are long articles that you can read bits at a time. Other resources are shorter and focus more on the practical advice on how to implement these 8 lenses in your daily life.  This website is designed for continuous use. Members of the Green Elephant Club have additional access to new learning resources, tools and videos that are designed on a monthly basis. We recommend starting by doing a 🛰️ Satellite Scan to accurately pin-point which elements would help you most right now.
