Episode 8: 5 Communication Lessons From Beyoncé

This week I am very excited to have…Beyoncé on the show! design_draw_speak

(Just kidding. Maybe one day. Beyoncé, if you’re reading this, would you consider joining me on the show? Tweet me!)

Anyway, I think the super talented Mrs Carter knows a thing or two about communication. How else do you build a huge tribe of adoring fans, including 13 million-plus Twitter followers?

In today’s episode I talk about 5 communication lessons we can all learn from Beyoncé. And most of them can apply to situations in everyday life, so I strongly encourage you to practice them…starting tomorrow! (It is a new year, after all!)

Quotable quotes from this episode:


“Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.”

Benjamin Franklin


“Remember that a person’s name is to that person the sweetest and most important sound in any language.”

Dale Carnegie, How To Win Friends And Influence People

“Say my name, Say my name,
You actin’ kinda shady,
Ain’t callin’ me baby,
Better say my name…”

Destiny’s Child, Say My Name


That’s a strong, powerful stance right there. Image from Clare Chiara
