In this episode, Jeannette talks to Andrea T Edwards who is known as The Digital Conversationalist. She is an author, public speaker, podcaster and a communications expert that, over the years, has helped many companies, including Microsoft, to improve the way they communicate.
They discuss how to develop cultural intelligence so you can get the best out of people regardless of where they are from or how they were raised. How communicating in the digital world differs and how to use social media to genuinely connect rather than to broadcast what you have done or think. Andrea also explains how to become more resilient and be ready for the radical changes that the world is facing.
‘To work out how to get the best out of the people that you work with from different cultures requires really deep empathy and sensitivity. ´
‘In the English language, we use about 5,000 words regularly, yet there are about 700,000 aspects of body language.’
‘We need to stop being scared. We need to step into our voices and get the world on track.’
This is the perfect time to get focused on what YOU want to really achieve in your business, career, and life. It’s never too late to be BRAVE and BOLD and unlock your inner BRILLIANCE.
