Everyone can learn from this

I had Matt Abrahams as my professor at de anza college about 10 years ago. I learned a lot in his class and became more confident in myself. With every episode I’m building on that by gaining new perspectives and learning more about strategic communication. Overall, a very enjoyable and helpful podcast.
