Andrea’s Top 3 COMMUNICATION INSIGHTS from 2020

Growth Mindset

Talk About Talk is grounded in a growth mindset.  A growth mindset is critical for communication superpowers: listening, storytelling and communicating with confidence. (If you’re a Talk About Talk follower, chances are YOU have a growth mindset!)

Online Communication

The increased prevalence of online media means new skills required to excel in this online world.  The online environment is now the paradigm for every communication context and topic.

“How are you?”

The question “how are you?” has a whole new meaning and focus in our conversations.  What used to be conversation-filler is now a genuine question:” How are you REALLY doing?” (This is a silver-lining of COVID!)
