Hello and welcome to another edition of the Monday Quickie!

Last week I shared a video from The Oprah – a short and heartfelt statement that, I believe, rings true for every human being: we all want to be heard and validated.

Today I’d like to share a video by communication stylist Nikki Elledge Brown. Nikki is a communication whizz, her particular expertise is helping people communicate their message authentically in their businesses.

You can see a brilliant summary of Nikki’s tips here.

Please share your favourite tip below – mine is definitely tip 6: Check for understanding. Don’t assume. Ask questions for clarification and repeat back by paraphrasing.

I’d love to hear yours!
