I truly believe in lifelong learning and development, and I'm always looking for new insights and ideas. My most important learning tool is my podcast and blog, Meeting Strategist. On this page, you'll find a selection of my articles and podcast episodes on leadership, coaching, and communication.
Kwame Christian, the author of 'Finding Confidence in Conflict', talks about the role of leadership in tackling systemic racism in our societies. Given the recent events, leaders need to start a difficult but crucially important dialogue about race and inequality in the workplace. In this episode, you’ll learn where to start and why sanitized statements won’t get you anywhere.
Retired police detective and human behavior specialist Bob Pointer breaks down the rules of effective communication and explains how leaders can apply them in their conversations. We also talk about the role of power in creating an effective conversational climate, how human relationships are built and why trust is the center of everything.
Michael Bungay Stanier returns to the show to discuss his latest book ‘The Advice Trap’. We are hardwired to add value to each and every conversation and offer our advice without being asked. And why not? Our knowledge is probably the biggest reason why we got to where we are today. But if you want to grow as a leader, you have to be able to resist the temptation to offer advice – or tame your advice monster, as Michael calls it.
