In order to solve the world’s stickiest problems, we have to change the way we listen at the interpersonal level – starting with those closest to us. Maybe for you, that’s family.

And Dr. Jeff is exactly that. He’s my oldest brother, a prolific author, a deeply respected speaker and leader, and a recent cancer survivor.

Though our worldviews are often opposing, what we share is important – VALUES. So I pressed record on one of our conversations in hopes of sharing how we have learned to challenge each other, how to stay curious, 5 conversation-altering words you can use, and how arguments often lead to agreement.

I hope this chat inspires you to reconnect or reengage with someone you love. Because cancel culture may not be the answer – especially with those we hold dear.
