Communicating Constructively During Tragic Times


Dawn Echols and I enjoyed chatting after I interviewed her on my “Biz Communication Show.”

2017 WAS A CALAMITY PACKED YEAR–SO WE NEED THE ADVICE OF A PROFESSIONAL COUNSELOR

As 2017 ends, we can easily recall dozens of tragic events that shocked the world–generating fear, pessimism, and sadness. Among them:

–Houston Texas floods
–Puerto Rican hurricane
–California fires
–Las Vegas Strip sniper shooting
–Mexico City earthquake

World wide, thousands of homes suffered destruction, and people lost loved ones as well as their possessions.

Bombarded daily by news about these catastrophic calamities, how did anybody keep composure–or even sanity?

The best advice I heard came from a professional counselor, Dawn Echols. Join us in this interview–on the “Biz Communication Show”–to benefit from her powerful perspective:

Positive Self-Talk Supports Your Life and Career

Katie Highsmith hosts me on WDUN's "The Local Hour" to discuss the personal and professional advantages of positive self-talk

“What?” you protest, “I don’t talk to myself!”

Yet think about that for a minute. Haven’t you muttered comments like these?

“I’m always late.”
“This job interview scares me.”
“No way I can speak to an audience without having a panic attack.”
“Usually, I am not a good mother.”
“Remembering names just isn’t one of my talents.”
“Heck, no way I can land that account.”
“Going back to college wouldn’t work. I’m not smart enough.”
“Helen will get the promotion, because it’s a sure thing I won’t.”

Or if you haven’t used those words exactly, chances are good that you have rated yourself low in other ways. With that in mind, Katie Highsmith and I discussed the incredible results that powerful self-talk brings to your life and career. Among our topics:

*What to say to yourself before your job interview
*How your inner dialogue will help you deliver a more compelling speech
*Dr. Shad Helmstetter, author of the pioneering classic book on this topic, What to Say When You Talk to Yourself.
*Helmstetter’s concept of “erase and replace”
*How to access Self-Talk videos on You Tube, one produced by Helmstetter and one that I produced
*Why supportive self-talk carries special importance on Monday morning
