Social Connection: We all need people to love, respect and care about us—both at home and at work. As mammals we’re all born immature, requiring food and care from our family—primarily our mothers. This social bond starts out as a survival need and becomes a psychological need even as adults. In short, we need other people to help us be happy, successful, and thriving. As the author says, “You can’t build a rocket ship on your own.” In fact, we need people all day, every day, to reach our potential.
