The Leadership Growth Podcast

I’m honored to be the first podcast interview at The Leadership Growth Podcast, with Daniel and Peter!

Daniel and Peter interviewed me about my new book, The Bravery Trick: Four Easy Ways to Say Hard Things.  In this interview, I shared some observations, tips, and suggestions for how to be braver in conversations with bosses, colleagues, and direct reports–while preserving psychological safety and remaining respectful.

Tune in to learn:

  • What bravery is and why it matters in the workplace
  • The importance of curiosity in being brave
