Connecting Across Differences is a new podcast by Dian Killian, PhD of Work Collaboratively about having greater empathy for yourself and others, and how to hear others more deeply and make sure that you’ve been heard. Episodes are available on iTunes.
Listen to Episode 10 below:
Take a moment to honor the wonderful feeling that is actually a need. What does it mean when you tell someone “I love you”? What are you really trying to say? What is it that you are appreciating about that person in that moment? The more we can better communicate what we mean when we say this phrase, the stronger connection we can make with those we love.
We’d love to hear what you’ve discovered! Feel free to post to the Work Collaboratively Facebook page.
You can also subscribe to the Connecting Across Differences podcast on iTunes. Please be sure to leave a review if you enjoyed the episode!

I’ve thought back to this episode every day since I listened to it. I really enjoyed hearing how you apply this to home and work. I found I could especially relate to the anecdote about ‘morning’ styles in the household. Hearing how you are always curious and learning how to apply the Nvc mindset inspired me to appreciate my own progress and persist. I’ve left a review on itunes previously – and I want to encourage other people to do the same so there are enough reviews for apple to publish the rating. Thanks again for sharing from the heart – I share your passion that this mindset and skillset has so much to offer our happiness, homes and workplaces in these times that are bringing up a lot of worry and despair for many. Common ground can be found – and compassionate, sustainable agreements emerge!
the guitar over the speaking is a bit overbearing
Thanks for letting me know. Will share with the producer. It’s actually me playing mountain dulcimer. 🙂
