Lioness Magazine just announced Words That Work as their book of the week.

You can read the full interview here. My favorite question they asked me was who the book is for and why people should read it. Here’s my reply:

If you’ve ever replayed a pitch, a meeting or a conversation back and wished you could have a second take at what you said, this book is for you. Too many times, it’s easy to get caught up in preparing precise presentation slides or detailed spreadsheets without spending the time to plan and practice exactly what you will say and how you will say it.
Words That Work is full of quotes and scripts that tell you just what to say to get the results you’re looking for with your board, your investors, your team and your peers. It deconstructs the power of language and gives you tools you can immediately use to communicate your personal and company purpose that will deliver you profitable growth.

Take a moment today:
Ask yourself if you are having candid conversations with your teams about the most-difficult-often-avoided topics…

…it’s easy to be too cautious and hold back, when the opposite is needed
…it is easy to avoid rather than face conversations that need to be had
…it’s easy to form habits of avoiding and placating situations when sometimes you have to agitate
…it’s easy to do this if you create your own “truth telling norms” with your team and peers about just how candid you can be with each other and how you will go about sharing your candid feedback.

Are your truth telling conversations happening at the right moment with the relevant people?

Chapter One of Words That Work gives you the tools and techniques you need to create a truth telling culture around you. You can download it here.

Send me back your reflections from any of the tools shared in Chapter One before the end of June and I’ll share some personalized advice for you.

Dedicated to growing your business,
