57: #57 Difficult Conversations In this episode Rach & John visit the subject of Difficult Conversations, a topic which they cover in depth on their Building Better Leaders Programme.


“Good intentions don’t always result in good impact.” Often with the best of intentions things can go wrong, and the impact you intend is never the one you had in mind. 


They tackle the subject from a “miscommunication” angle and take a look at three different areas of a conversation?


We learn from our ability to catch ourselves and become more self-aware of what we are contributing in any conversation, so understanding the anatomy of conversation can help us when we consider:



Who did what, Who said what, Who was right and wrong?
How we tackle our feelings, and those of the other person?
What does our behaviour in the heat of the moment say about us as a person?

They discuss, various areas of a conversation and how we can better prepare and plan for a successful outcome.


The books referenced in the podcast which inspired their approach are: 




“Difficult Conversations.” Patton, Stone & Heen.  

“Atlas of the Heart.” - Brene Brown

56: #56 Presenting for exceptional performance with Lee Warren In this weeks episode Rachael & John are joined by Lee Warren to understand how using the Alexander Technique can help us communicate and perform better when under stress?


The way that you think affects the way you perform, and vice-versa; the way you perform affects the way you think


Remembering that stress is very uncreative, Lee take a little step back and asks us to think about focussing on our awareness.


He asks: Do you sometimes make the mistake of focussing on yourself when presenting, when you should be focussing on what the audience are expecting from the presentation?


Instead of thinking how am I doing? Turn your awareness to focussing on the audiences thinking:


-What’s in this for me?
-What am I going to get out of this?
-How will this help me?
-Will I make any money?
-Is this a good use of my time?


What does the audience expect to hear?
What des the audience need to hear?


Lee also shares some really valuable tips on how we can network more effectively.
