Talk Less, Say More: Carol Roth Interviews Connie Dieken

Written By: Carol Roth | Comments Off on Talk Less, Say More: Carol Roth Interviews Connie Dieken
From The Entrepreneurship Interview Series

Want to communicate better, inspiring and influencing those around you?  Then this interview is for you- it’s bursting with insight and advice from the country’s foremost Fortune 500 leadership communication coach, Connie Dieken.  She is an Emmy Award winning former news anchor, an inductee into the Radio/TV Broadcasters Hall of Fame and the President of Influential Leaders, where she has guided thousands of leaders from organizations like Apple, Olympus and McDonald’s to be more influential.  She is also the author of the phenomenal book, Talk Less, Say More.

Connie and I cover a number of topics in our interview, including:

-The 4 Cs of communication;
-How to avoid email miscommunications;
-Why you shouldn’t “EUI” (email under the influence);
-How to react to criticism;
-Why eyes trump ears in communication;
-And more (including the super power that Connie would like to have!)
