It’s spring, and the Sharons are finally on the same continent. Fresh from a month in Southeast Asia, my co-host Sharon Phillips was struck by the warmth and grace of the people she met in Thailand and Cambodia.

It’s also a good reminder of how often we Americans fall into the trap of “seat-of-the-pants” communication. Yes, we’re communicating, but are we also listening?
In this episode, we explore this topic, delving into:

- How to break the cycle of reactive, non-strategic communications
- How to speak the language of leadership (hint: KPIs are your friends)

If you’ve set a goal to become a more strategic and more effective internal communicator, we hope you’ll listen in.
