The CreatingWE Institute President, Maria Escobar-Bordyn was part of the Keynote Conversation opening the Transcending the Crisis virtual conference in June 2020.

Whit Raymond and Maria discussed in their conversation how what they’re thinking in the moment does show up in how we engage with others, and our interpretation of what we’re experiencing of others are put through our own personal filters – whether true or not. As leaders, or just people, being transparent and, I daresay – vulnerable, about what’s going on, helps us clarify intention, and connect with others even in difficult circumstances.

Here’s their discussion on “The Power of Conversation” Ep. 126 – Conversational Intelligence® with Nicklas Balboa

The Art of Strategic Reaction - Podcast with Kyle Brost

Judith Glaser is the founder and CEO of Benchmark Communications Inc., and a leading voice in a field that is known as conversational intelligence, which seeks to understand how our conversations shape us and our futures. Judith’s interest in the dynamics of conversation began at the early age of 11, when she unexpectedly learned of her father’s story as a young man dealing with having a stutter. Her experiences within her family and educational contexts led her to investigate conversation, interaction, and how we can activate change within ourselves. Since then, she has been at the helm of her company for almost 40 years, where she helps organizations and CEOs look at their conversations, identify what’s working and what isn’t, understand how the brain works, and use those insights to choose conversations that lead them to success.

Judith talks about her big breaks, making mistakes and rolling with them. She walks through how to use her books and materials. You can see how she's gotten great clients and speaks to such prominent organizations. [ Listen to the Conversation ]

Judith Glaser, Conversation 2

This conversation was fun and engaging since Judith is charismatic, experienced, and cheerful, even though it started solemnly, owing to a terrorist attack in Manhattan the day before. We covered politics a bit -- now that I think of it, one of this podcast's few forays there. We talked about leadership from many perspectives, including her storied experience, given her experience with globally known leaders (Donna Karan, etc) and top organizations (Harvard, Apple, etc). Most of us rarely get to talk to people with such connections and history... [ Listen to the Conversation ]
