Chip Heath, professor of organizational behavior at the Stanford Graduate School of Business, describes research where strangers were brought much closer, emotionally, simply by having them ask each other a series of increasingly personal questions. Heath, co-author of the book “The Power of Moments,” says the study shows how “we’re only 45 minutes away from really close connections” with the people around us.
