Watch Intro Video

Emerson and Jonathan discuss the importance of jumpstarting conversations with lead-in sentences to improve communication. They focus on four categories: true communication, kind communication, necessary communication, and clear communication. They provide examples and suggestions for each category, emphasizing the need for being teachable, transparent, accurate, and respectful in conversations. They also highlight the importance of acknowledging feelings, fostering collaboration, allowing disagreement, and waiting before talking.
