Have you ever spoken to someone where the other person appeared to interpret your words differently than you did? Is there a deeper reason why this happens?
In today's episode, I am joined by Michael Liebowitz, whose background in linguistics and behavioral neurology allows him to work with businesses to understand the value of developing a human connection. We delve into the science of communication and the role of beliefs in shaping the way we communicate. He also provides practical tips for leaders to improve their communication skills, such as being aware of their internal stance and the importance of framing conversations positively.
