About the talk

The way we communicate matters because it has consequences. When it is done well, communication creates human contact, enables a person to discover solutions, builds people up, deepens their relationships, and serves as a source of inspiration and influence. And although all of us communicate every day at work and at home, we often fall short of our own best aspirations. Most often, it is because we may not know how.

This session was an introduction to the art of positive communication. It is based on the premise that the “spoken word, spoken honorably and well, can make a difference that no other form of communication can equal.” In it, you will learn six critical behaviors that will improve your capacity for connecting with others, help you foster high-quality relationships, and lead others positively.

Framed by powerful stories and a practical model of communication you can use today, the session will invite you to transform your own communication and thereby create your own best moments as a person and a leader.
