In this thought-provoking episode, I explore the powerful impact of language on communication and leadership, inspired by insights from Stanford University’s Life Design Lab. The negative effects of using the word “should” in advice-giving and how it can cause people to shut down. Join me as I delve into the power of replacing “should” with “could” and ultimately moving towards sharing personal experiences, and how this can lead to more effective communication, stronger connections, and growth for everyone involved. Discover how these simple linguistic shifts can revolutionize your leadership skills and help you create a more positive, constructive environment for feedback and personal development. Don’t miss this chance to elevate your communication skills and unlock your full potential as a leader!
