This podcast answers some of life's most challenging and awkward communication questions. We cover everything from diffusing a jerk to asking for a raise. We'll talk about how to start a conversation at a networking event, and what to do if your nose starts running in the middle of a presentation. You'll learn how to handle these situations with ease. These episodes are based on actual questions from my clients every day and come with practical tips you can start using immediately. I've kept these episodes short, so you get just what you need, when you need it, without having to listen through long, drawn-out interviews. Listen, whether you're talking at work, home, or just hanging out with your friends, there isn't an aspect of your life that isn't impacted by your communication, so why not be the absolute best you can be?

If you find yourself in email hell on a regular basis, you aren't alone. 

Email sucks away the life of many an employee.  On average, you're receiving about eighty emails a day, sending close to forty and it's sucking away about 28% of your work time.  (read more here).   You already know that email doesn't improve your communication efficiency but did you know that research shows email is only 7 percent effective as talking.

So do you keep using it when it doesn't make sense? 

Let me make this super simple… if you want to get yourself out of email hell pick up the phone. 

Yes, that means you'll have to use your actual voice, words, and thoughts with another human. You might have to navigate confusion, emotion, or even conflict.

You are perfectly capable of doing that. And, the likelihood that won't create further confusion, emotion, or conflict will go down dramatically. Your efficiency and productivity will increase, and if you do this enough, might even get better at talking.
