Joy Superpowers – Episode 5 – Assertive Communication with Paulette Dale

In episode 5 of the Joy Superpowers podcast, I’m talking with Paulette Dale about the Joy Superpower of Assertive Communication. Paulette has a Ph.D in Linguistics and Communication from the University of Florida. She’s the author of “Did You Say Something, Susan?”, a book that empowers women to speak with more confidence. Paulette has even received recognition for her work on the floor of the United States congress. She’s thus an acknowledged speaker on assertiveness training and effective communication. Paulette is also known as the person who complimented Donald Trump’s smile on a live broadcast.

During my chat with Paulette, we cover topics such as:

– Connection between language use and well-being

– Reasons why women and men speak differently

– Assertive communication in practise
