Thanks for listening to this new episode of The People People Podcast featuring a cool conversation with Josh Orendi AND the full audio of a recent TEDx Talk by your host, Matt Mattson!
You're one of us, aren't you? You're a people person. But you get that being a “people person” isn’t just about being chatty and smiley and super-duper nice, it’s about transforming the world through relationships. You're one of those people who understands that HUMAN CONNECTION is the key to everything. You're one of those people who understands that humans are social animals, and we're all deeply longing for real, meaningful, deep-spirited connection in all aspects of our life. You're one of those people who understands that the secret to creating the world you want is found in your ability to connect. You're one of us. We are people people. And you found our show.
Josh Orendi is a co-creator of The Social Excellence Project and a co-author of Social Excellence: We Dare You. He’s also one of the most curious people you’ll ever meet in your life. He’s a master question asker. And he doesn’t disappoint in this episode. Listen to the end when he challenges the host with a question that sticks him right in the heart (in a good way).
This episode also features the audio from Matt Mattson’s (the host of the podcast) recent TEDx Talk titled, “Curiously Uncertain.” Enjoy it, share it, and consider its implications on your life. How can you ask more and better questions every day.
Curiosity is such an innocent little idea. Sure, just ask questions. But asking excellent questions that actually push conversations forward and take your relationships “off script” as is discussed in this episode requires intention, thought, and perhaps most importantly… practice.
Enjoy this episode of The People People Podcast! Thanks for listenting!
