This week, you’re in for such a fun and enlightening conversation with Riaz Meghji, an author with 17 years of experience connecting with people through his career in broadcast journalism. He and Trista talk all about, well... talking! They discuss conversation, connection, how to be a better listener, and how to be more intentional with how we engage with others. They laugh at themselves and their filler “ums” and “sos” and “likes” and Riaz shares tips on how to keep them under wraps. He also offers insight into how the pandemic has made human connection that much more meaningful, how emotions can be a distraction to the present moment, and how small talk is actually a defence mechanism! Plus, Trista introduces Riaz to the Enneagram test. Do you believe that human connection is one of the most important things in life? If so, this is a conversation you don’t want to miss.
