Celeste Headlee - We Need to Talk: How to Have Conversations That Matter — in conversation with Joshua Johnson

Upcoming Event
Saturday, September 23, 2017 at 1:00 pm

As the host of the Georgia Public Broadcasting radio talk show On Second Thought, Headlee finds the importance of good communication skills reconfirmed every day. But you don’t have to have interviewed hundreds of people to understand how much depends on saying the right thing, whether it’s getting a job or maintaining productive, civil discourse. Drawing on her popular TEDX talk, “10 Ways to Have a Better Conversation,” Headlee breaks down effective communication into a set of basic skills that apply to both professional and personal interactions. She reminds us that listening and staying silent is as essential as speaking up, and she shows how we can be alert to our own blind spots and biases.

Headlee will be in conversation with Joshua Johnson, host of NPR’s 1A.
