Conscious Conversations, With Chuck Wisner

Filed in Podcasts, Previous Episodes on July 27, 2021

Conversations are integral to the act of living as a human being. From our days in the crib, we appropriate the beliefs of our culture and our families.

What we adopt generates unique, fingerprint-like patterns of thinking, feeling, listening, and talking.

These conversational fingerprints underlie the emotions we feel and the stories we tell ourselves and others. Our natural patterns of talking and listening are so ingrained that they run on unconscious autopilot in the background of our minds.

Our fingerprints serve us well when conversations with bosses, colleagues, kids, and friends go smoothly and when our emotions are positive, confident, and joyful. But when conversations take a turn toward frustration, anger, confusion, or fear, we often find ourselves at a loss for words, not knowing how to talk about the things that matter

Chuck Wisner joins Adam to discuss mastering the art of collaborating, creating, and building trust with others – in business and in life.

Discover:

  • The four types of conversations;
  • Why the four types of conversations matter;
  • Why miscommunication is so common;
  • Why we struggle so much with listening;
  • And much more!
