With a distinct array of experience in academia, culture and communication expert Gino Perrotte draws from his time in both artistic and cultural areas such as fashion and gymnastics but also his time in corporate management to provide an empathic yet logical service as a coach. His belief in travel as a true experiential endeavor has led him to places like Italy where his communication skills help him understand not just what locals are saying but how and why.
In this episode, Gino shares with our audience the four kinds of listening styles and how each one can come in handy depending on the circumstances, how to discern your true inner worth so that you can understand where your value is positioned in the market and how we communicate with everything at our disposal; hands, eyes, shirts, background and especially hair.
