The Eric Ibey Podcast explores topics that Eric finds interesting. Right now, it's political correctness. There seems to be a lot of confusion about what we can say and how we can act without offending other people. Join Eric in his quest to find common ground with people on both sides of every viewpoint.

Eric's Story

I've lost friends, job opportunities, and lovers because of poor communication skills.

In elementary school, I was shy and insecure. In high school, I was awkward. In university, I was cocky and sarcastic. After the first big breakup of my life, I realized I needed to change.

I went out and met as many strangers as I could. I quit my job, sold my house, and traveled around the world for 2.5 years. I moved to Montreal and learned to speak French. I started a blog called the Year of Fear and forced myself into uncomfortable social situations on the regular.

Nobody ever taught me how to communicate effectively. I've learned that communication is a skill that anyone can learn if they're willing to be more honest, vulnerable, and open-minded. Better communication skills have helped me build trust with anyone, resolve conflicts quickly, feel confident in new situations, create stronger relationships, and have more success in my personal and professional lives.

I want to help people build the courage to improve their communication skills so they can find more joy, peace, and success. We live in an ever-divisive, disconnected world. Our workplaces and schools are well-connected electronically, but we're missing a human element. Face-to-face connection is the key and it takes courage to speak your truth. By strengthening our communication techniques with everyone around us, I believe we can create more kindness, understanding, and human connection in the world.

And who doesn't want that?
