In this episode, we talk with LB Adams, Communications Expert and Author, about how clear communication is the driving force in healthy relationships. We start off the episode by defining what communication means. Webster’s dictionary defined communication as the giving and receiving of information in an agreed-upon format. We build upon these ideas throughout the episode when we talk about “Hell, Yes, the Words You Choose Matter,” what is destructive language and why you never want to name call, the origin of words and why it’s important to know, and LB’s top three tips to instantly improve your communication.
