How to give good advice

Listen 03:29

Advice from others can be helpful – but it’s not always welcome. When a neighbor, colleague or loved one tries to tell you how to live your life, it can feel intrusive and presumptuous.
So how do you know when your advice is wanted, and is actually helpful? In their weekly conversation, WHYY’s Maiken Scott and psychologist Dan Gottlieb talk about the art of giving good advice.
