    A Conversation with Olympian Chris Mazdzer

    A Conversation with Olympian Chris Mazdzer

    On this episode of Conversations About Conversations, Jakub Kubrak and talked with Chris Mazdzer. Chris is the first American athlete to win a medal in the Men’s Single Luge event (or as he calls it, “Ultimate Sledding”).
    We learned a lot about luging and the conversation for what it takes to become an Olympic champion. I’m sure this will not be a shocker, but it takes time and practice—lots of practice! Also: dedication, commitment, drive and sacrifice.

    Manipulation Has a Bad Reputation

    Manipulation Has a Bad Reputation

    Not all manipulation is bad. One definition of the word manipulate is to control or influence in a skillful manner.
    The point of having conversations is to control or influence them such that you can get agreement for action, create the life you want, and help others do the same.
