COMMUNICATE LIKE A PRO

COMMUNICATE LIKE A PRO

This podcast is for anyone having trouble communicating with anyone and is based on the book Communicate Like A PRO written by psychologist-father (Dr. Dennis O'Grady) and educator-daughter (Riley O'Grady). Episodes are inspired by the communication questions submitted by our listeners, readers, corporate training participants, and clients. The TALK2ME© Laws of Effective Communication and PRO Rules transform any relationship impasse into an open avenue of two-way communication. Based on the characteristics of two distinct communicator styles—Empathizers and Instigators—this podcast helps you really understand why you react and respond the way you do during conversations, arguments, and disagreements, and why others react and respond the way they do, too. The Communicate Like A PRO podcast gives you powerful tools to solve long-standing relationship problems and challenging communication obstacles as they play out at home, in your relationships, and at work. Based on twenty years of research and development with 40,000 psychotherapy clients from all walks of life, it comprises critical feedback tools from a series of over 500 leadership training courses for all levels of management to develop a culture rooted in open and honest communication.
