Introducing Christine McDougall, “Speak the Truth”

If you are someone that has ever struggled with having a really important conversation, like delivering feedback, or getting your point across, or handling issues where anger, upset, personal attack, or criticism are present, then you are in the right place.

You may have a friend with whom you have had a falling out, or a co~worker who never keeps their promises, or a boss that takes you for granted. Or a spouse with whom you seem to be growing more distant. All of these situations, and many others, ask us to speak up. But we have never really been taught how to do this, and do it in such a way that allows us to build a bridge, instead of tear a bridge down.

Today I am thrilled to introduce you to Dr. Christine McDougall. Her work on Speak the Truth began 12 years ago in corporate Australia, where she was asked to support the delivery of performance feedback. Since that time, Speak the Truth has been delivered around the world and has changed people’s lives.

In addition to Speak the Truth, Christine has worked for 17 years with entrepreneurs and leaders of industry from around the world on how to create success on their terms. Many of her clients stay working with her for years. Their businesses thrive, they become deeply admired and respected as leaders, their intimate relationships flourish. Most importantly, they feel more empowered, confident, clear and energised.

Other than her degree as a Doctor of Chiropractic, Christine continues to study human development theory, integral theory, global politics, the poetry of the mystics, world economics, and history. She regularly teaches Integral Theory to the entrepreneur class at Bond University and has been a life long student of R.Buckminster Fuller. She often runs seriously long distances in a day, just for fun.

Christine is known for her ability to tell the radical truth with compassion. Not much passes under her radar. Today Christine is going to talk about how to tell the radical truth with compassion, in her talk “Speak The Truth.”
