Season 3

Season 3:
Welcome

This is a brand new season of Words With Friends and my team and I are excited to be back. 

We will be featuring some of the sharpest minds in the industry as well as the world’s greatest thought leaders that I have the pleasure to call my friend.

Marcus Sheridan: Integrity

Our main theme for today is integrity. During these challenging times, are we doing things that are lacking integrity? Are we treating our family members, our colleagues, our clients and our peers with utmost integrity?

Kate O'Neill:
Humanity

What does humanity mean to Kate? What does “being human” mean? Is it our love and passion that makes us human? Is it our creativity? Or maybe our problem-solving skills? We kickstart today’s show by attempting to answer this rather convoluted question. 

Amy Port:
Performance

In today’s show of Words with Friends, Phil interviews Amy Port, Co-Founder and President, Heroic Public Speaking.

Today we are going to talk about “performance”. And there is no one better suited than Amy to give us some nuanced insights on this topic.

Chris Ducker:
Productivity

As “work-from-home” becomes the new normal in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak, all of us are struggling to maintain a healthy work-life balance. While it is natural to feel stress and overwhelm in these trying times, Chris shares some simple yet effective measures which can help you boost your productivity and protect your business. 

Mark Bowden:
Lying

As a body language expert, Mark is adept at determining if a person is lying or telling the truth – which brings us to the moot question. Is it really bad to lie?  

Is it really advisable to be brutally honest in all situations? Mark goes on to share why, to be socially adept, it is important to lie sometimes. 

Sylvie di Giusto:
Image

In today’s show, we talk about the word, “image”.

This word has been often misunderstood and often viewed as shallow and superficial. However, Sylvie shares how creating a positive image requires you to look inwards, work on your gaps, and improve.

Alison Stratten:
Family

Family means different things to different people. For Alison, her family is her purpose, her foundation – that gives her stability. Her life revolves around her five kids, ranging from 13 to 23. 

During this virus outbreak, Alison shares that like most people, her family is also under lockdown.  How have her family dynamics changed in the wake of COVID-19?

David Horsager:
Trust

Our theme for today’s show is “Trust”. In the current situation, when the whole world is grappling with the virus outbreak, maintaining trust has, perhaps, never been more difficult. But, we need to strive to choose the harder right rather than the easier wrong.

So, how can we retain trust in these challenging conditions?

John Ruhlin: Present

The word for today’s show is “present”.

Considering the current circumstances, this word perhaps has never been more important and relevant. Right now, is it more of a challenge to “be present” as our mind tends to drift to bigger problems brought on by the pandemic. But by doing so, aren’t we being really unfair to our families and friends who are just looking to have a heartfelt conversation with us?

Clay Hebert: Clarity

Our main theme for today is the word, “clarity”.

We talk about clarity from a professional point of view. As the virus continues to disrupt the livelihood of many, how can you stop, pivot, and grasp the new normal? How can you get a 30,000-foot view to truly understand what’s going on?
