You Can Never Be Too Clear

1/12/2021
As George Bernard Shaw said: “The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place.” As a leader, it’s easy to tell people something one time or send a single email and assume that they got the message. If you want to be a great communicator, that’s a bad plan. In this episode I’ll offer some tips for making sure you understand other people and they understand you.

Start with "Yes"

11/9/2020
While learning to say “No” is a useful and powerful leadership skill, it can be the end of a conversation. And, while it is sometimes necessary to end a discussion so that you can move on, it is more often helpful to keep the conversation going. To do that, good leaders learn how to say “No” by first saying “Yes”. That is the approach I’m exploring in this week’s episode.
