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?

Have you ever wondered how you're "supposed" to respond to a compliment? Do you have to
give one back? What if you don't know what to say? It's OK to wonder, and I'm here to help.

Saying thank you is always OK when it comes to compliments. Acknowledging a compliment is
polite and shows that you appreciate the gesture.

If you feel like saying thank you is boring or repetitive, try these phrases for a change;-I appreciate that.
-That means a lot coming from you.
-You made my day, thank you.
-I receive your compliment. Thank you.

You can return with a compliment if you want, but you don't have to. People generally give
compliments because they mean them and want you to feel good. Not because they're
expecting anything in return.
