More
Resilience isn't just our capacity to stand there and take the slings and arrows of life, it's the power and agility in which we respond to those slings and arrows. We don't have a limited amount of resilience and that's good news.

We can build unlimited strength and speed in our response by learning to effectively “bounce,” and we can do that even...

042: How to Open with Empathy

5/11/2017
More
Counselors use a powerful skill in getting their clients to talk about issues that are painful, scary, or deeply personal. It is called a "reflection of feeling." When you reflect back to someone what they are feeling, you meet them right where they are emotionally. You've connected with them, they don't feel quite so alone with this feeling, and they know you have an understanding of what is going on with them. Using this technique with success is what this episode is all about! Episode...

041: How to Ask a Good Non-Question

5/5/2017
More
If you’ve ever tried to have a conversation with a teenager, you’ve experienced maximum frustration. Not being prone to volunteer information, they usually wait for adults to initiate discussions. Unfortunately, most adults just keep asking a series of questions. The more cryptic the answers, the more questions get asked. Frustrated, the adult begins to “quiz” the teenager using closed-ended questions (those that can be answered with “yes,” “no,” or “I don’t know.”) This often ends by...

038: Leadership Training for Women - 3 Key Skills

3/23/2017
More
This one is for women in leadership (and men who work with women leaders!) No one really taught us how to lead like a woman, right? We learned lots of general skills about team building and managing change. But the skills necessary to walk that fine line between acting like a man or playing girlish games? Not so much. Sometimes we learn the greatest leadership lessons from people who aren’t very good leaders at all. I learned three important distinctions about how to lead like a woman...
