The words we choose have a huge impact on the outcomes we experience. To become a more inspiring leader (and lover), you can learn to use words that create trust, respect, connection and loyalty. Learn the 22 Talk Shifts to upgrade your leadership.
Our leadership and romantic relationships are impacted by what we choose to say and how we choose to say it. I often speak about the importance of looking deeper than our words, to the invisible factors beneath the surface.
Today’s Man Alive podcast guest, Krister Ungerböck, highlights how the words we choose make a big difference in the outcomes we experience. The words we use to initiate conversations, respond to requests and give feedback have incredible power.
