Do your words convey both your message and your meaning? Whether we are leading an organization, a team, or part of a household, this is important. For Krister Ungerböck, this became apparent when he was teaching a course in French. Feedback suggested he should never come back again, and he realized it came down to language and the words. Krister is the Wall Street Journal best-selling author of 22 Talk SHIFTs: Tools to Transform Leadership in Business, in Partnership, and in Life, which is the result of leading teams in 3 languages and building businesses on 5 continents. Krister provides examples of how we can shift our conversations to increase engagement and lead to better solutions.
In this episode, Krister discusses:
- The directness of language.
- When to give feedback.
- Advice for remote leaders.
