Ft. Crystallin Dillon
Communication and understanding is what often creates the strongest connections. Yet for some reason, many of us find it extremely difficult to connect the two! Whether you can’t communicate how you really feel, or perhaps you are communicating, but your message is not being interpreted in the way you intended.
This is an extremely frustrating reality for many, and is often what causes havoc in relationships both personally and professionally. In this episode, Crystallin is unpacking the importance of understanding how to communicate with impact, so that your messages, and responses are deeply understood by yourself and the receiver.
Crystallin is the founder of an amazing community called “The Bay Area T-Group” and she has an abundance of knowledge on the practice of mindful communication, designed to cultivate self-awareness and thriving relationships in both your personal and professional life.
In this episode, Crystallin gives us key insights into how even people with great skill sets can flounder and fail if they cannot communicate effectively and build strong, resilient relationships.
Crystallin helps us get clear on how to communicate your message openly and effectively, so you can make an impact and create thriving connections across your personal and professional life.

Featuring: Tenille Gilbert
Tenille is Co-Founder and Chief Operations Officer at Society Melbourne, the umbrella brand for numerous social enterprises working to create sustainable pathways out of homelessness for young people in Australia.
During our chat you will come to see that Tenille is a passionate advocate for young people, believing in the ability to unleash their potential. I was thrilled to speak with Tenille so we could dismiss the idea that millennials are a ‘snowflake’ generation.
This is an inspiring chat on so many levels! Tune in as Tenille shares her insights on the unique world of social enterprise, the sacrifices the younger generations are willing to make and their belief that if there is a problem then “we CAN do something about it”. Tenille is a great example of how the younger generations don’t wait for the system to create change, they make an impact and live on purpose each day, and we can learn so much from them, if only we stopped to take notice of the wave of positive change they are creating each day in small ways.
Thank you Tenille!
