About the episode:
Dr Therese Huston is a scientist, consultant and author. As a cognitive scientist at Seattle University, she focuses on aiding people with their communication skills. She also runs her own consultancy helping those who aren’t reaching their full potential in the workplace. In 2016 she presented a TedX talk on what smart groups do differently. In this in-depth conversation, Dr Therese discusses her most recent book “Let’s Talk”, which delves into her pivotal research and explains ways to make yourself heard; discusses the most efficient ways of providing feedback, especially in ‘the culture of nice’, and the many lessons she’s learned along the way; and describes why hiring more women “isn’t a box ticking exercise” in the name of political correctness, but a vital progression that genuinely improves many aspects of the business including the bottom line, turnover and increased investment.
