"We Need to Talk": Celeste Headlee
Celeste Headlee is an award-winning journalist, author, public speaker, and vocalist spreading the timely message of how to have better conversations. She has appeared on NPR, PBS, CNN, and BBC, and if her viral TED Talk, which has been viewed over 6.5 million times, is any indication--we’re all seeking solutions for how to cross the divide to one another. Celeste reminds us that before we can take any first step, we must choose to believe that listening has something to offer us. While it may be easier to surround ourselves only with people who think the way we do, we are actually robbing ourselves of a much deeper understanding and openness when we insulate ourselves. The simple and for some more difficult truth is that if we want to keep growing, we have to keep expanding.If any of this appeals to you you've landed on the right episode for you. We hope you will join us to listen in to the wisdom of Celeste Headlee.
