Your Intended Message is the podcast about how we communicate – mistakes we can avoid and how we can communicate more effectively.
Think about the last time you had a message go wrong. You didn’t know why. The receiver of your message didn’t get it or they reacted weirdly and you had no idea what their problem was. That’s the challenges that this podcast will address. Every week, I’ll interview experts on different aspects of communication skills.
We’ll explore what’s not working, what might work better and the context you need to view around your communication. When messages go wrong, it might be you, your message or them. What can you do to improve your opportunity to deliver your intended message more successfully?
Communication is perhaps our most valuable skills as humans yet we still get it wrong. This podcast examines how we might become more successful communicators.
