“Every time the time was right all the words just came out wrong.”
Has this ever happened to you? You’re speaking with a person who could change your life, but you just can’t find the words to say what you want to say. If you’re a musician, like Jim Croce, you might break into song and save the moment. The rest of us have to learn to Say Things Better.
Meet Lila Smith.
Lila is the Creator of #SayThingsBetter, a Strategic Communication Mentor for Tech Startups, and a much in demand global public speaker.
Yes, she is a bit of a word geek, but Lila is not your average shy librarian. She’s a trained actress who spent many years working on the stage.
Now you might be asking, what does communication have to do with acting? But then, if you’re like me, you stop and realize that communication is the essence of acting.
In this episode Lila shares with us the approach she uses to help entrepreneurs say things better. You’re going to be shocked at the simplicity of it.
She talks about one of the unexpected impact of her decision to start her own business and move to Dallas Texas, and that is the strains that it’s put on her relationships with family and friends.
And if you want to see Lila in action, stick around to the end. Lila actually coaches me through an exercise to bring clarity to my own communication. (Free coaching. Yea!).
Please do not hesitate to reach out to me. I’d love to hear your thoughts, comments, and stories, or just make a connection.
