The “How Can I Say This…” podcast offers tips and advice for real-world communications challenges, such as difficult conversations, conflict, giving and receiving feedback, negotiating, and other situations where what you say and how you say it makes a difference.
Your host is Beth Buelow, PCC, founder of ZOPA Consulting and author of “The Introvert Entrepreneur: Amplify Your Strengths and Create Success on Your Own Terms.” As a credentialed professional coach, she’s spent the past 10 years offering support to entrepreneurs and leaders, holding space for them to explore their strengths, fears, and very often, their communication challenges. Beth’s also a trained mediator and loves finding the “Zone of Possible Agreement” (ZOPA!) in any situation that comes her way. She’s hosted The Introvert Entrepreneur Podcast since 2010.
In every episode of "How Can I Say This...", you’ll find ideas about how to handle your communication conundrums; tips on feeling more confident and comfortable with conflict; opportunities to learn from real-life situations through questions shared by listeners; and ultimately, gain skills and techniques for dealing with sticky situations at work and home. Of course, we can’t be all talk and no action; each show will end with an invitation to try a particular technique or approach that came up in the episode.
Episodes will feature listener questions, as well as expert guest interviews and contributions. The scope of conversation will evolve over time… we’re open to seeing where this goes. Thanks for joining us on the journey!
