Every think about the words we use? No...not four-letter ones when we hit our shin on the tow hitch. I'm talking about the framework of our language...simple words, like "But" & "Then". Did you know that the words we use have the power to literally shape how we think and act with the words we use? Sounds crazy? Coach Reed Maltbie joined me for a fascinating conversation about this very topic and I promise you'll be a believer by the time the episode is over.
Reed is a brilliant guy who's cracked the code for effective communication. He's been coaching sports since he turned 16 and he's distilled decades of knowledge into a concise handbook for how to level up how we communicate. These insights landed him a Ted talk, speaking engagements within massive corporations and now a brand new book!
What he shares isn't just for the sports field; on the contrary, it's equally (if not more) applicable to parents communicating with kids, spouses communicating with each other and employers communicating with team members. This is a must listen and I promise you'll want to go and buy the book after hearing what it's about.
