Ep013: Kwame Christian, Compassionate Curiosity
There are times when we feel stuck in our communications, that no matter what we say or how we plead our case, we make zero headway with the other person. We’re so fixated on what we need and want, we forget to consider the other person and their needs and wants. What are some ways we can turn that around and create a situation where everyone gets what they need?
This is going to be time well-spent, because my guest, Kwame Christian, offers us some awesome insights on how to connect on a meaningful level with someone – even a 2-year old! – and have a persuasive conversation.
Be sure to stick around after the conversation for a few action steps you can take to have more productive interactions with people in your life.
