    #9: Difficult Conversations: Why They're Important and How to Have Them

    #9: Difficult Conversations: Why They're Important and How to Have Them

    Too often we avoid having difficult conversations because we tell ourselves it's just not worth the effort. Nothing will change. We tell ourselves that our manager or whoever’s involved doesn’t care about us and that there’s no point in speaking up. Often it’s easier, and quite frankly safer, to believe these things rather than to take action.   

    While no one likes having difficult conversations, when we avoid them, we trade short term discomfort for long term dysfunction.   

    In this episode, I share why it's critical to have hard conversations, a framework for guiding these discussions, and three tips that will ensure you're successful in having them.

    #8: This Simple Tool Will Stop Anger From Destroying Your Career

    #8: This Simple Tool Will Stop Anger From Destroying Your Career

    Anger is something we all feel at times but left unchecked it can cause irreparable damage to important relationships and harm our career. I've found that a simple tool—what I call an "unsent angry letter"—can help prevent raw emotion from getting the best of us.  

    Benjamin Franklin, Abraham Lincoln, and countless others have mastered the art of the unsent angry letter. Doing so allowed them to act deliberately and consciously rather than out of frustration or anger.   

    In this episode, I share why you need to master the unsent angry letter and how doing so will help you become more effective in all aspects of your life.

Nathan hits the mark - providing highly applicable insights to anyone looking to make the most out of their career.
