Conversation with Heidi Halvorson on NOBODY UNDERSTANDS YOU

“The uncomfortable truth is that most of us don’t come across the way we intend   We can’t see ourselves truly objectively, and neither can anyone else.”

In her latest book, NOBODY UNDERSTANDS YOU, Heidi Halvorson provides us with the tools to alter our words and actions so we send the signals we intend.  We had a great discussion with Heidi Halvorson.  Lots of actionable advice on how to improve the effectiveness of your own communication.  What is so surprising is how little we actually take in AND how challenging it is to change first impressions!
