Laura Steward Discusses How Star Trek Metaphors Can Improve Your Communication Results

Podcast Episode 127                                         Release Date: January 12, 2018


On this podcast Laura Steward, CEO of Wisdom Learned, LLC, shares her view of how you can sometimes helpfully reframe your communication with others by thinking like a Trekie. Laura says that using Star Trek TV and movie metaphors can serve as a doorway for improving your communication results with others by becoming more aware of the role language, metaphors and words play to get across or frustrate meaning and understanding. Laura cites the Darmok Metaphors episode with Captain Picard and Paul Winfield as a good example of what can happen when another party doesn’t understand your meaning. She also discusses how painful childhood experiences can follow us into adulthood and can impact our ability to share or feel “comfortable” within our own skin. Laura operates from a simple philosophy – “Treat people better than they expect to be treated.” Laura is a sought after speaker, Nautilus Award winning and international bestselling author and business advisor. She is the author of the Bestselling Book “What Would a Wise Woman Do? Questions to Ask Along the Way.” Through her weekly Radio Show, Entrepreneur Master Class, keynote speeches, books, seminars, trainings and one-one sessions, Laura’s mission is clear – she helps people get off autopilot and create amazing, successful lives.
