Today on the Take on Board podcast, I'm speaking with Dr. Melinda Muth about how effective relationships are built on effective conversations and how effective conversations are built on positive language.
Melinda is on the boards of Harvard Club Australia Philanthropy and Curious Works and she has previously been on the boards of Indigenous Community Volunteers, Heart Kids New South Wales, Union University and Schools Club and Quest for life Foundation.
Melinda is an educator and consultant who specializes in decision making and group effectiveness, principally with senior executives and leadership teams.
She introduces the concept of psychological safety and has real-world examples of how to communicate with the diverse people who make boards great.
Contact Melinda or find out more about her:
