In this episode, we speak with Donnie Hill. Donnie is a communication & leadership coach, and an impact-oriented business strategist. He currently runs the Life Maximizer consultancy, sourcing his lessons from an eclectic background which ranges from personal training to stage acting.
It’s clear that many traditional leadership and communication techniques aren’t taking us down the roads we need to walk together. Often “influence” techniques seem manipulative, morally grey, or even dark-side. Donnie points us down a new route: one inspired quite a bit more by the light-side of the force.
Donnie and Gavan talk about topics like restorative leadership, holding compassionate conversations with people you *strongly* disagree with, and how to “invite people in,” even during a negotiation.
