Whoa, we're in November! And it's Thursday again, so here are this week's three useful things to help you turn overthinking into expert thinking:

  1. Better conversations await when you can spot the difference between explaining versus thinking aloud. Here's what that looks like
  2. How do I communicate with more tact? Muriel Wilkins' Coaching Real Leaders (HBR) podcast episode has the answer.
  3. A pithy and powerful newsletter post from Rachel Botsman on trust, control, and giving back The Conn

This week's picks all center around leadership and trusting others. There's quite a lot to think about here, so I'll leave you only with a question…did any of the above spark a new insight for you? Please reply and share!
