AMP – 12 Practices For Deep Connection
Like an NBA basketball player drills on the basics to make art in the moment, or a
martial artist trains in particular moves, these Connection Practices are your “chops”
for creating deep connection and rewarding interactions.

And since I’m an uber-geek about this stuff, I’ll break down the stages of the AMP
Holarchy and the AMP Connection Practices as they come into play during the
interaction – and note them in
