"Communication is a "how" we achieve great things in life. It is not an end in itself." These are the words from Damon Jones, a kid from Detroit and Chief Communications Officer for Procter & Gamble, the world's largest consumer packaged goods company...to name a few. Have you ever had a conversation and wondered...hmmmm, how did we end up here? I know I have. Damon and I talk everything from his excitement of opening, Nostalgia, a Black-owned wine and jazz lounge in Downtown Cincinnati during a pandemic, to communications in and outside of the corporate space, to even strategies that will help you avoid communication entanglements, whether now or years to come. Through a few laughs, pointed and transparent dialogue, and my "come as you are" round of questions, we jumped #allin. You don't want to miss this three-layered, power-episode of Coaching, Cocktails, & Conversations!

May this episode shed light on self-reflection and a shifted way that you choose to communicate...differently and more intently.
