Episode Summary

Tamsen Webster reading from Carol Tavris and Elliot Aronson’s Mistakes Were Made (But not by Me) and discussing how to shape and share your ideas in an irresistible way.

Part of the genius of humankind, the very bedrock of civilization is our ability to have ideas and to share them. “Hey, have you noticed …? Hey, what if…?” That’s why it’s SO irritating that it’s SO hard to actually transmit your best thoughts. Tamsen Webster can help. She bridges worlds as an  English-to-English translator. She’s worked with hundreds of TEDx speakers to help take ideas from nebulous and confusing to irresistibly compelling. Her new book, Find Your Red Thread, is a blueprint.

Tamsen reads two pages from Mistakes Were Made (but Not by Me) by Carol Tavris and Elliot Aronson [Reading starts at 19:25]
