podcast Mar 30, 2021

 Great conversational skills matter for every leader. Trust is built, however, by the experience you create in the middle of the conversation. In today’s episode, Annie Perdue-Olson is joined by Mary Verstraete of the Center for Coaching Excellence to talk about what it means to be a conversational leader, why it’s important and how we can do it.

  • Moving beyond skills to developing your leadership presence 
  • The power of attitude in all of our conversations to demonstrate respect and care
  • How to enter into the emotional world or situation of the person you are talking to
  • Ways to acknowledge the deep human desire to be seen and heard
  • How to prepare yourself to show up fully to the conversation

PLUS, why it’s important to face the bias that may be limiting your leadership presence in the conversations that matter to you.
