Some Listening That Makes A Difference

“It takes a great person to be a good listener.” – Calvin Coolidge

To change it up a little, and also because I am currently on holidays…:), I thought I’d share some podcast episodes that I think you’ll enjoy if you like what’s on my weekly emails.

First up is an interview I did a few weeks ago with Tamara Howard. Tamara runs a successful strategic marketing and communications company and over the course of an hour she had some interesting very questions that provoked some useful answers that I believe you’ll get value from.

The Irony Of Not Getting A Coach

“The coach doesn’t have to play the sport as well as you do. They have to watch you and get you to be your best.”

Eric Schmidt, former CEO of Google

“I just don’t get why business leaders need someone like you.”

This, or a version of it has been said to me many times by business people. Now when I hear it, I have to stop myself laughing so as not to come across as rude.
