When we let go of our focus on exactly what message we want to convey and don’t think about the words tumbling out of our mouths, we can find ourselves in the midst of a major miscommunication.

When we let go of our focus on exactly what message we want to convey and don’t think about the words tumbling out of our mouths, we can find ourselves in the midst of a major miscommunication. This situation can be mitigated by intention and thoughtfulness … a few moments to consider what words best convey what we want to say. Joining Jess Dewell today are Johanna Walker and Nora Richardson to discuss ways to effectively communicate what we mean with what we say.


Program 96 LIVE - What We Mean, Not What We SayStarting The Conversation:

  • What can we do to ensure we convey what we mean with the words we use to say it?
  • What are the elements to avoid miscommunication?

Host: Jessica Dewell
Panel: Johanna Walker, Nora Richardson

What You Will Hear:

It’s ok to start with what we don’t mean

What to include in a story – what we want to communicate.

The power of a single message.

The grace of trying again to hone in on the message.

They way we start to shape and move toward a long term vision.

Add the perspective of the other people – the people we are communicating to.

The communicator and the receiver.

Power of practice; comfortableness.

Why it is BOLD to mean what we say.

Notable and Quotable:

Johanna Walker: Say what you don’t mean in service of clarifying and figuring out what you do mean.

Nora Richardson: A single message is necessary to know what we stand for and whom we stand for.

Johanna Walker: The more you speak and the more information you get helps you find your genie gem.

Nora Richardson: Stand in your knowledge.

Johanna Walker: Decide and be willing to be uncomfortable.

Jess Dewell: Be specific in language to create a shared meaning to work from.

Johanna Walker: There is always a give and take to meet them and staying true to myself.

Johanna Walker: I practice enough that when I show up I can let go of the practice and be present in the moment.

Nora Richardson: It takes as long as it takes.

Jess Dewell: I actively seek how to learn about what I’m practicing.

Nora Richardson: You get comfortable with being uncomfortable.
