Cory Berg: Self Talk and Active Listening

Rewired Mind

30-03-2021 • 49 mins

A very close friend of mine – it was great to interview him on Rewired Mind to dig a little deeper into this incredibly kind and talented guy. He can describe himself as a “software guy” oftentimes (and is a very good one at that!). He’s also a writer and is very focused on helping other people improve in the workplace.

A recent quote from the mind of our buddy Gary Vaynerchuk “Don’t create; document” has influenced some of Cory’s writing.

We spoke on the importance of self-talk and how he believes that having an analytical mind can lead to catastrophic thinking. He shared the idea that, for him, filling the “cup” of others can help to fill your own.

He also talked about how active listening – a critical thing for any software development person - is an important skill for all people to hone.

You can connect with him on LinkedIn and visit his website:

His book Software++: Must Have Skills for Software Engineers is available on Amazon.

A book that Cory would recommend is How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie
