Communication is key in all areas of our life. Business, relationships and every day wanderings require communication. According to my guest Michelle Gladieux, raising your game as a communicator is one of the best ways to make a difference in the world, but it takes courage.
Michelle is an instructional designer, trainer and executive coach. She has 18 years of collegiate teaching experience and has her own consulting company helping teams of people communicate with courage.
Her new book COMMUNICATE WITH COURAGE guides us on a journey to take risks to overcome four hidden challenges that Michelle has identified. These challenges often stop us from communicating to the best of our abilities.
Michelle gives us many pro-tips as she calls it, to assist us in our own communication journey. Her four hidden challenges (fears) that she has refined from coaching thousands of people are: hiding from risk, defining to be right, rationalizing the negative and settling for good enough.
We all do one or more of these in our communication with others and Michelle gives us examples of each of these four challenges and a few tips s to help us overcome them for better communication.
