Intro We can get so caught up in our own business, what it does, what it delivers and how great it is, we can often forget that the way and how we communicate can have a huge effect on someone’s perception of you and your organisation.
They say first impressions count, but that doesn’t mean we forget about the second, third or hundredth impression! Every time we interact with our clients, prospects and employees we need to be mindful of the way we communicate, what we are saying and how we are saying it and there is no better person to take us through this topic than Lila Smith (probably the nicest person on the internet).
Lila is the creator of ‘Say Things Better’, an Intentional Communication method based on her previous life in the theatre, helping people to, well, say things better. And if you think about it, this makes so much sense, who better to help us with what we are trying to say, understand an audience - what they want and learning to take note of ques and listen to what others are saying!
In this episode we cover; - The Say Things Better methodology? - Making sure you resonate with others? - Tips on staying quiet and listening? - How to use different media to communicate
Now this podcast episode doesn’t start with the usual question as the start of the video recording was worth sharing on the podcast. Enjoy as we take a look at effectively communicating with Lila Smith.

Takeaways Top Tip Lila says that you need to focus on being present, be in the moment, not in the future or the past, but to understand what is happening now. After all, it’s the only thing we can have any level of control over
Favourite Quote ‘listen for intent, not content’, which is hugely powerful. It can help to make us more attentive, more engaged and of course – intentional in our actions.
And Finally, the Most Important Takeaway from this Episode Is one of the most important things to remember whenever you’re communicating, with family, in business or to a client. Don’t forget your audience! You audience will have an impact on how we communicate and understanding things from their perspective will help us to Say Things Better.
