The Lesson In Improving Conversations: My 3 Biggest Tips
Manage episode 350623784 series 3011843
EP288: In this week's "Lessons Learned" episode I share my 3 biggest tips to improving conversations that I've learned in my coaching training.
I always thought I was a good conversationalist until I went through my coaching certification. Wow, was that an eye-opener!!!
I learned my conversations were more about me trying to get my voice heard and give my opinions and/or advice vs. me wanting to connect with the other person and making sure they felt heard and valued.
Or if I was trying to connect, I wasn't doing it with the intention of making the person I was talking to feel heard and seen. It was with the intent of ME being seen and heard! :(
Sounds kind of awful, doesn't it? But now I know why, and if you'd like to know more about that, check out last week's episode (Episode 286), where I share a childhood trauma I uncovered that explains everything!
As I was thinking about what topics to cover as we head into the holidays, I thought about all of the conversations that will likely be happening at parties and at family gatherings, and how nice it would be if you could learn how to better connect with the people you talk to.
But be careful because you might become the most popular person at the party once you learn how to master these tips. 😜
