While you are an amazing, fascinating, incredible being, when it's time to connect to our fellow amazing, fascinating and incredible beings, drop the agendas and the running monologues. Listen to others and connect to what they are saying. By all means, share your stories and opinions, even when they disagree... just as long as the connection is there.
Stay in the moment too. Leap frogging three steps ahead disconnects the conversation and puts you back into your own story.
It's easier said once done.
