Raising our game as communicators is the best way to make a difference in our careers and relationships, but it takes courage to find our voice, open up, and invite others to open up to us. As a life-long communication coach, Michelle Gladieux has discovered four obstacles keeping us from becoming the best communicators we can be:

  1. Hiding: Fear of exposing our supposed weaknesses
  2. Defining: Putting too much stock into our assumptions, being quick to judge
  3. Rationalizing: Leaning on pessimism to shield ourselves from taking chances, engaging in conflict, or doing other scary but potentially rewarding actions
  4. Settling: Stopping at “good enough” instead of aiming for something better in interactions

Michelle Gladieux is the author of 'Communicate with Courage: Taking Risks to Overcome the Four Hidden Challenges' and President of Gladieux Consulting, a Midwest-based team known for top-notch design and presentation of seminars in communication and leadership topics around the U.S. She provides executive coaching and facilitates strategic planning for clients in diverse industries, in governments, at non-profits, and in academia. Michelle has mentored thousands of people and her positive effect on those she advises is evident even after just one interaction. Her clients and friends are delighted she's finally documented some of her best tips (AKA "Pro Moves") in Communicate with Courage.
