When someone is nodding when you’re talking, how do you know if it’s genuine interest and understanding or simply fake listening and they’re ready to go to sleep?
Call back Episode – Ep. 263 – Meetings redesigned and redefined
Many of the meetings we attend or lead simply need to be completely blown up and rebuilt entirely. Maybe the original intent has been altered, or we have fallen into a rhythm and routine and lowered the bar too low. Sometimes, we just might need to have a meeting to design all the ones that […]
Call back Episode – Episode 214 Thanksgiving: notes of gratitude
Thanksgiving Day is a wonderful time to gather and celebrate with family and friends. This time of year (all the time, for that matter) is a great time to quietly contemplate – and take note of – all the things in our lives that we are grateful for, from the simple to the profound.
Ep. 308 Highly Recommended (why these two words are priceless)
A recent recommendation from a colleague stopped me in my tracks. His two simple words made me not only heed his advice but also pause to think about the power of deliberate, direct counsel for professional and personal improvement. Especially in a day with non-stop noise and constant choices, “highly recommended” can help clear the […]
Ep. 307 – Collaboration chaos: making time in the office matter
Quality collaboration counts more than ever when workers aren’t in the office every day. Whether they are hybrid or fully remote, the time they have together (in person or online) is precious. In this episode, I share ways to get ready for collaboration like it’s game time and how to have the right mindset to […]
Ep. 306 – Return-to-office mandates won’t work
CEOs are delusional to think they can order employees back to the office and turn back the clock. We live in a hybrid world now and employees are resisting the call not just because of the flexibility and elimination of a commute. In this episode, we talk about the deeper reason why the RTO mandate […]
Call Back Episode – Ep 268 – Running from time (not out of it)
Busy people are always complaining about how little time they have. In reality, they have plenty of time yet run from it and spend bits and pieces of their day creating and consuming noise. In this week’s episode, I share a different perspective on time management that will challenge you to get off the hamster […]
Joe, I simply wanted to publicly thank you for crafting this podcast series. Perhaps we can share ideas that were inspired from your Episode 155 in due time.
I’d be interesting in digging deeper into “What is Fear?” and how we as communicators and listeners in our modern world may be using that word too loosely...and confusing ourselves on why we should speak up (or not), when to do it, and how we might.
In any case, EXCELLENT series, phenomenal episode (#155), and HIGHLY RECOMMENDED to others not yet following this podcast
Great advice on communicating for impact
Joe McCormack’s Just Saying podcast takes a page from his book Brief. He provides quick but rich pointers in how to communicate in a focused way to get the desired results. I learn every time I listen.
Joe’s podcast is a great tool to supplement his course material or listening to it without taking the course. His podcasts are 15 minutes or less and are easily digestible during commutes.
