We are all broadcasters. We are constantly broadcasting information to others, even if we don’t say a word. Managers broadcast to their teams during meetings. Team members broadcast to clients. Clients broadcast to potential clients. And the messages we choose to broadcast shape others’ views of the world.
Our words can move other people from a fear-based mindset in which they see obstacles as insurmountable, to a positive mindset where they see that change is possible, get unstuck, and take action. What makes the difference is what we choose to broadcast. Using scientifically proven communication strategies to ripple out positive change to others, we increase their happiness and success at work, as well as our own, instantly making us more effective leaders.
We cover how to deal with negative people, how to practice gratitude, how happiness influences others, and a lot more. This is packed with practical advice that you can use to change your life, and the lives of the people you meet.
