  2. Powerful Non Defensive Communication: An Interview with Sharon Ellison

    Have you ever thrown your hands up in frustration because you’ve been misunderstood? Or walked away from a conversation feeling angry and fuming? Or tearful because you’ve been going round in circles trying to communicate with someone you love? Join me in this interview with Sharon Strand Ellison as she talks about her remarkable program called Powerful Non-Defensive Communication. This is an easy-to-understand method of “taking the war out of our words” and learning a new way to say what we mean in a way that is much more likely to prompt people to drop their defenses, often instantly, and create the conditions for an honest, fulfilling way of talking and being understood. With a few simple techniques, we’ll be able to see what we’ve been doing that isn’t helpful, and change it. She and I will role play during the interview, making this a fun and informative session. Join us! I promise, in one hour, you’ll walk away with enough knowledge to make a change immediately.

  3. Powerful Non-Defensive Communication

    Sharon Strand Ellison, Communication Consultant; Author, Taking the War Out of Words

    Avoiding defensiveness and power struggles improves the quality of human interaction. Ellison describes how we can learn to express ourselves with a compelling blend of vulnerability and honesty, thus turning conflict into cooperation and resentment into rapport. She offers a coherent communication model and practical skills that she asserts can strengthen relationships and increase organizational effectiveness.

    This program was recorded in front of a live audience at the Commonwealth Club of California on January 7, 2009.

  4. RadioLab | From Tree to Shining Tree

    A forest can feel like a place of great stillness and quiet. But if you dig a little deeper, there’s a hidden world beneath your feet as busy and complicated as a city at rush hour.

    In this story, a dog introduces us to a strange creature that burrows beneath forests, building an underground network where deals are made and lives are saved (and lost) in a complex web of friendships, rivalries, and business relations. It’s a network that scientists are only just beginning to untangle and map, and it’s not only turning our understanding of forests upside down, it’s leading some researchers to rethink what it means to be intelligent.
