Episode Description

Say It Skillfully® is a show that helps you to benefit from Molly Tschang’s expert guidance on the best possible ways to speak your mind at work in a positive and productive manner. In Episode 103 Emma calls in first and shares frustrations with leadership’s mixed messages regarding “making mistakes.” After owning up to a mistake, she feels management still may hold it against her; they talk about how to handle this, including avoiding perceiving meaning that others don’t intend. Then, Clare is enthusiastic about a career change—new job and new industry—and keen to get started on the best possible foot. She and Molly talk about numerous ways for her to be proactive as the new kid on the block and to ensure that people perceive her the way she would like (14:00). Finally, co-business owners, Julie and Corey, join Molly for a lively chat about their (wildly) different communication styles! They discuss the imperative of first owning what’s going on for each of them before considering the other, and how to meet each other part way. Being intentional in creating their “team alliance” also came up, a powerful way for them to model effective collaboration to their small business clients (29:00). Tune in to these real-time situations and learn how to navigate work while being invaluable and true to yourself. Molly’s thought for the week: It's easy to look tall when you feel tall. And check out #sayitskillfully resources to help you say what needs to be said. * The Power of Appreciation! http://bit.ly/389vRpB * Here’s how to dissolve defensiveness with your boss https://bit.ly/3lvuWXH * All Molly's videos by category here: https://sayitskillfully.com
