"As working from home stretches to months rather than weeks, leaders find themselves planning for and communicating about longer time horizons while working from home and communicating with their teams who are also working from home. This week, I’m revisiting and building upon a piece of advice th...
Once you know something and it is obvious to you, it can be difficult to understand how it is not obvious to someone else. This "curse of knowledge" can then become a barrier to effective communication. In this episode, I'm sharing four steps that help me to overcome this communication challenge.
This episode, like the episode last week, is what I like to call a "lighthouse" episode. It's more about what to watch out for than what to do. I'm continuing my discussion of ideas that inspired me from therulesofcivilconversation.org. Two more logical fallacies to beware of: the ad hominem and genetic fallacies.
This episode examines how two common logical fallacies - Black-or-white thinking and Middle Ground solutions - can get in the way of effective leadership and leadership communication.
Have you ever had a conversation with someone and you thought: "What is wrong with them?" I have, and it usually does not help me to communicate better if I linger on the thought. In this episode, I'll offer some thoughts on how to get past that thought and to disagree without being disagreeable.
The title basically says what I think of the feedback sandwich. In this episode, I'll share the problems with the feedback sandwich and what to do instead.

That tendency can create communication problems when we let the stories we tell ourselves about other peoples intentions get in the way of discussing the impact of their words and actions. In this episode, I'm exploring this idea and how it interferes with our communication effectiveness.

Conflict certainly has a negative emotional aspect for most people. Is conflict always a bad thing, though? In this episode I'll explore this question and offer a perspective to help you build your conflict confidence as a leader.
