  • Listen to what Judith has to say about traditional methods of communication–asking and telling. She says we need to move to much deeper, richer conversations, which she calls going from transactional to co-creational.
  • Judith is influenced by a number of leaders and you can find out more about her work, like the concept of C-IQ by visiting Conversationalintelligence.com.
  • She advises us to “listen to connect not judge or reject.” The key is to learn how to pull the right information from people and not push them away. This style of listening shifts the chemistry in our brains and moves to an open space for greater communication. Don’t miss what she says about language.
  • Listen to how she truly believes in living outside-of-the-box and not being bound by others. This isn’t the first time that a leader told us that they wanted to be able to fly. Check it out.
  • She talks about listening to herself and trusting her gut. Don’t miss what she says about instinct.  
  • She talks about the rhythm of the universe and the bond we all have with one other. Fascinating. Don’t miss it.

Judith’s interview is filled with practical advice for leaders, and it really hits home on something we do everyday–communicate–but that we need to do better as leaders. Her ideas helps develop leaders by getting to simple with speaking and listening in a more profound way. Be sure to get your copy of her book, Conversational Intelligence: How Great Leaders Build Trust and Get Extraordinary Results, and let us know what you think.

Please follow, like, and comment; it really helps. Use #onethingseries and #SH302 so that we can find you.
