A Deep Dive into Real 6 Star Relationships; with Lindsay Adams & Sowon Sawyer - #37
Show Notes

What a joy it was to meet with Lindsay and Sowon, on this episode of the podcast.  I’d have to say that what connected them both was their sense of fun and creativity in their lives: Lindsay as a steam train builder for kids (in his spare time) and Sowon as the kids tv program creator Warner Media.

They brought us a masterclass on communication and relationships in a fun, warm and engaging way.

Here’s a snapshot of what we discussed:

8:39 - creating vulnerable connections

13:00 - the situation dictates how open we will be

19:45 - asking the right kinds of questions

24:13 - the impact technology has made on conversations

31:15 - personal touch trumps everything

36:00 - the art of truly listening

Plus much more…
