“How do I navigate this conversation?”
Have you ever found yourself asking this question?
When you consider everything that goes into hard conversations – the people involved, the message to be delivered, the timing, the power dynamics at hand, etc., communication can seem complex.
But it doesn’t have to be so confusing.
Today’s episode will give you tools and strategies to identify, organize, and leverage the factors at play in the delicate dance we call “conversation.”
It’s not the full monty, but when you piece it together with a handful of our other resources, knowing the 4 styles of communication will help you view your conversations from a new vantage point.
In addition to the 4 styles, we give specific examples of how to piece together several components of conversation, including:
- Power Dynamics (AOC Podcast E63)
- Influence Tactics (AOC Podcast E202)
- Drives (AOC Podcast E130)
- Context (AOC Podcast E95)
Knowing the information is one thing, but practicing and applying it is what actually moves the needle. If you’re looking for guidance and feedback on how to apply this information to your life, you need to start with our Conscious Coaching Challenge.
