This show is guided by YOU! What are you struggling with? I'll find the expert - let's learn together.
If you’re a human being, this will resonate with you. Communication affects every aspect of our lives — work, families, friendships, romantic relationships…and there’s always more we can learn and ways we can improve. Host Malika breaks down different concepts of communication with educational experts, but she keeps it all within reach, clear and understandable. Meaning? I GET it, and it’s not going over my head!! Her skills as a reporter shine through — I appreciate her ability to “translate” some of these theories and keep them not only relatable, but also really fascinating!! It feels like she’s learning WITH us, reinforced by the additional interviews with everyday folks that reflect on the topics in real-life, honest and candid conversations. I am so impressed with the Communification Podcast and find myself excitedly awaiting the next episodes to learn more. Imagine if we all put energy and effort into beautifying our communication?! Whether it’s conflict resolution, tips for digital distraction or ways to vanquish “phubbing” (WHAT is this? You’ll want to find out), this podcast is a huge step in a very welcome direction. Each episode will leave you thinking long after it’s done!! Well worth your time.
This podcast has it all.
Real professionals, proper research, and authentic stories that entertain and relate to everyone. This smart podcast has excellent reliable resources and fun topics to explore. Malika’s communication with guests and her audience is engaging, genuine, and welcoming. The first podcast I listened to felt like I had just got off the phone with a dear friend. It reassured me that it’s okay to make mistakes and to be human. It was refreshing to hear, and it was the perfect positive boost to start my day. What I love most is the message that we all have room to grow and learn. As an educator, I am constantly seeking to discover more. This podcast does just that in a bright, friendly, and enjoyable way! Mahalo Malika, I can’t wait for more.
Understanding yourself DEFINITELY promotes communication
What do we really want in life? Who do we want around us? Who do we want to be? How do we serve? Who am I? By understanding yourself and your goals, truly helps to promote your own individual awareness and increases your personal accountability. Malika delivered concepts that society needs a refresher on, in order to help survive such a crazy world. She engages her audience with relatable scenarios that promote thought-provoking ideas not only for yourself as a listener, but for anyone looking to communicate better or achieve a understanding in our communications. I truly believe that while some may not be receptive to openly communicate verbally, the podcast (at minimum) gets the gears in your head turning to THINK. The podcast opens your mind to consider other perspectives and points of views that you wouldn’t necessarily have considered previously. I’d highly recommend this podcast to everyone and their families, who are looking to improve themselves and their relationships. ❤️🤙🏼
