Communication is one of the clearest ways that we can step into our power. When we are straight and clear in our communication, we can ask for what we want, can get clarity, and can create the results we want. But other people don’t always have the same experience when they’re on the other side of our powerful communication.
This week, Tawana is bringing us a topic to be coached on around communication. While she prides herself on being a clear and powerful communicator, she’s gotten some feedback that her communication is hurtful or too direct. How can we resolve these kinds of issues in a wide variety of relationships, from work peers to partners to close friendships?
In this episode, Dr. Roni and Radiah help Tawana coach through these questions and talk all about powerful communication that’s effective, efficient, and has a positive impact. We talk about why other people might tell themselves stories about your direct communication, how you can take on their reaction without internalizing it, and why clear communication requires you to be a grown up.
