Terre Short | How to Avoid Dishing Uncertainty with Your Words
Join Nicola on today’s show as she gets into a powerful conversation with Terre Short about building more certainty and confidence personally and at work with the words we choose.
Discover the advantages and benefits to business by creating greater engagement, sales and productivity by replacing phrases and words that have sneaked into our vocabulary which drive uncertainty and risk.
Terre Short is an author, speaker, coach and creator of Thriving Leader Collaborative. She believes that truly authentic leadership is achieved when we embrace our inner wisdom to overcome business challenges.
As a NeuroMindfulness Practitioner, she has spent the last decade advising high performing Fortune 500 leaders on how to explore intuitive pathways to success.
Terre is the author of The Words We Choose: Your Guide to How and Why Words Matter and in today’s episode Nicola breaks down their interview into 3 key parts; finding words for confidence building, how to ask more powerful questions and how to practice more self-observation with the words we choose that reflect outwardly our inner struggles and negativity.
Discover how to retrain your brain with replacement vocabulary that builds self-belief and also the great example of shifting using “we have to ..” to “we get to …” and the difference this can make in team building. Plus the power of self-reflection to train yourself after meetings or interactions to look at the words you chose and whether these meet with your values and represent you in the way you want.
Finally, Nicola and Terre end on how women can more fully step into their values rather than competing with men using aggressive language, stepping into using kinder (not weaker) words to achieve the same effects, and proving that vulnerability in the workplace is ok, and can be motivating.
