Hi, and welcome to this podcast called “Communicate Like This . . . and everything will work better for everyone,” Really, that’s what I’m trying to accomplish—make things better.
Hardly anyone has ever been trained in how to communicate effectively, even though communication is foundational to getting through life. So, most of us are amateurs when it comes to talking, even though we’ve all got a lifetime of experience at talking.
As a result, our world, business lives, and personal lives are fraught with miscommunication, misunderstandings, preventable arguments, and stress, among a much longer list of bad consequences related to ineffective communication.
I want to break that dynamic by providing people some tools that they can use to achieve a true mutual understanding among the people they communicate with.
So, thanks for tuning in and becoming part of the communication revolution. Look for new podcasts with communication tips and techniques about once a week.
If you can successfully learn and implement the communication tools we’ll talk about over time in this podcast series, both your personal and business lives will improve.
Being a teacher at my core, and combining that with, let's call it, 40 years of business experience in making things work right operationally for Fortune 500 and smaller companies, I have what I like to think is a bit of unique experience and perspective compared to most people. The tools I'll teach have been selectively invented and collected over the years, using the most effective of them to produce results. This relatively simple stuff works to make your lives better when you take the action to use what you'll learn.
Many of the concepts in the podcast show have their basis in my management book titled Uncommon Sense Management. It's available on Amazon.com in both paperback and Kindle form. It shows how to produce more profitability and productivity in companies, all the while making employees happier and engaged in their jobs. Consider it sort of the textbook for the podcast.
