Welcome to my site, which is all about The Art of Connection—a home for people striving to live a connected and fulfilled life. I’m Todd Hall and I’m really glad you stopped by. I’m a psychologist and I write, teach, and do research, all with the goal of helping people grow.

My goal here is to share the collective wisdom of how we create thriving relationships and meaningful work. In the pursuit of the connected life, I focus on three core areas in my writing: personal development, work, and leadership.

I’d love for you to join me on this journey. You can join the community and get weekly updates and instant access to my free eCourse, Lead with Connection, by signing up here.



Personal Development

I write about personal development, with the goal of helping you become the best version of yourself.


Meaningful Work

I write about work, with the goal of helping you find your calling, and create a legacy of meaningful work.



I write about leadership, with the goal of helping you make a difference within your sphere of influence.

The theme that ties these topics together is connection:
(1) to work that expresses your unique personhood and forms your character; and
(2) to the people in your life.


The essence of my philosophy that informs my writing and work is this:

1. We are born to connect relationally and we are loved into loving.

2.  We are meant to create meaningful work that expresses our unique personhood and makes the world a better place.

3.  Leadership starts with connection and flows from virtue.

I’m interested in the convergence between loving relationships and meaningful work.  At the end of my life, I want to look back and know that I loved people and that I made a difference.  I want to help you do the same.  You can learn more about this in my eBook Lead with Connection by signing up here.
