“Slow down to the speed of connection.” – David Wood
Today’s featured bestselling author is a former consulting actuary to Fortune 100 companies, tough conversations ninja, speaker, and Laser focus coach, David Wood. David and I talk about why the elephant isn't the only animal in the room and how to amplify genuine authenticity in your relationships.
Key Thing’s You’ll Learn:
Why we should name mice instead of acknowledging the elephant in the room.
Why and how artfully naming mice will help you gain more influence as a leader.
Why we don’t need to exterminate the mice we name. Even if there’s an infestation.
Why all mice are not negative.
