The Strength of Grace & Space in Our Lives

There are many definitions of grace and they all seem to occupy space in our lives at one point or another. Yet we have never explored the strength of grace in our people skills chat.

Join us Sunday April 20, 2014, 10am EDT in #peopleskills Twitter chat to delve into the strength of grace and how it impacts the relationships in our lives.

The Strength of Grace in All Its Meanings

Join us in global people skills Twitter chat (#Peopleskills) this Sunday April 20th as we discuss grace and its potential in our lives.

Some questions to get us thinking in advance:

  • In what way do you most often think of grace – philosophically, religiously, behaviorally?
  • When have you benefited from grace?
  • Where have you felt grace in your life?
  • Grace is the beauty of form under the influence of freedom. ~Friedrich Schiller Agree/Disagree?
  • Grace and graciousness — outdated values or that special something?
  • What are some everyday examples of grace that we can live?
  • Grace as a gift — is it always present in our lives or do we have to foster it?
  • Empathy and grace – is there a connection?
  • How does grace bring strength to our lives if at all?
  • Where can grace take us?
  • What must we do to make space for grace in our lives?



These are just some questions to get us thinking before we begin. Actual questions will post live during the chat.

Let’s ponder the strength of grace together. Bring your personal perspective, favorite quotes, a beverage, and join us this Sunday April 20, 2014, 10am EDT in People Skills Global Twitter Chat (hashtag: #peopleskills).

Emotional Intelligence Impulse Control – Sunday’s People Skills Twitter Chat Topic

WHEN: Join us Sunday April 6, 2014 on Twitter at 10AM EDT. Hashtag: #peopleskills


Time converter:
Please click the time converter link above to convert 10am EDT to your local time.



Background on Emotional Intelligence Impulse Control

Balance is very important in developing relationships both at work and in everyday life. When we act purely on our own impulses, others may see us self-absorbed, insensitive, and in extreme cases, socially misfit. Yet the key question is, where is the balance point? How can we each control our impulses to respect others and still be authentically ourselves?

Join us Sunday April 6, 2014, 10am EDT in #peopleskills Twitter chat to explore emotional intelligence and impulse control. My co-hosts will be Ed Hennessy (@Leadershipcall) and Chris Hennessy (@EIInspired).

People Skills Twitter Chat: Emotional Intelligence Impulse Control

Work interactions — especially collaboration and teamwork — require both self-restraint and giving. When team members act purely on impulse, their actions impact others. When they mostly overlook others’ needs to play out their view, the results can be disastrous.

Join us in global people skills Twitter chat (#Peopleskills) this Sunday April 6th at 10am EDT to explore the delicate balance of emotional intelligence impulse control. Some questions to get us thinking in advance:

  • How do you define impulsive behavior?
  • What emotions trigger impulsive behaviors?
  • How do you typically deal with an impulse to act?
  • In what situations is reacting impulsively a positive?
  • How does someone’s low impulse control impact you?
  • How might your impulsive behavior impact others & relationships?
  • What are some ways we can improve our impulse control?



These are just some questions to get us thinking before we begin. Actual questions will post live during the chat.

So bring your personal perspective, your favorite beverage, and join me and the people skills global chat community this Sunday April 6, 2014, 10am EDT on Twitter (hashtag: #peopleskills) to explore People Skills: Emotional Intelligence Impulse Control.

People Skills Inspiration – What Makes You Jump in and Help Others?

WHEN: Join us Sunday March 23, 2014 on Twitter at 10AM EDT. Hashtag: #peopleskills


Time converter:
Please click the time converter link above to convert 10am EDT to your local time.



Background on This People Skills Inspiration Chat

In our previous two chats, we focused on identity. In the first one was all about what is your identity and what do you contribute to the play of life? Then last week we explored cultural heritage and its impact on people skills.

This week we explore identity from the aspect of what inspires people to help others. Specifically, when someone is in need, what inspires you to offer help? Is it in certain circumstances? Mostly in a crisis? Or when nobody else is helping? It’s an intriguing topic.

Join us March 23, 2014, 10am EDT in #peopleskills Twitter chat to explore people skills inspiration to help others. My co-host will be Dave Moore, Human Potential Technology motivational speaker and coach. Dave is also one of my great moderators of the people skills online community.

People Skills Inspiration to Help: What’s Yours?

To me this is a very interesting topic. Studies show that when people are in a crowd, they are less likely to jump in and help others. This bystander syndrome, also known as diffusion of responsibility, impacts everyone.

Join this discussion in global people skills Twitter chat (#Peopleskills) this Sunday March 23rd at 10am EDT. Some questions to get us thinking in advance:

  • When are you most likely to offer help to others?
  • Is it presumptuous or generous to help others before they ask?
  • Does receiving help make you feel grateful or resentful?
  • Have you ever had someone reject your help? Why did they?
  • The bystander syndrome – why do you think it happens? What do you do in a crowd?
  • What role does self-confidence play in giving/receiving help?
  • Agree/Disagree: Natural leaders initiate an offer to help. Followers wait to be asked.
  • How does helping others fit your view of life?
  • Why do some people offer help while others wait to be asked?
  • If you picture a great life, what role does giving/receiving help play?



These are just some questions to get us thinking before we begin. Actual questions will post live during the chat.

So bring your personal perspective, your favorite beverage, and join me and the people skills global chat community this Sunday March 23rd, 2014, 10am EDT on Twitter (hashtag: #peopleskills) to explore People Skills Inspiration to Help – When Do You Take Action for Others?

His answer: “That you are here — that life exists, and identity; that the powerful play goes on, and you will contribute a verse.” What is your identity? What verse will you contribute to human interaction? How will the powerful play go on because of you?

Join us March 9, 2014, 10am EDT in #peopleskills Twitter chat to explore how identity contributes to the powerful play of human interaction.

Sincere Connections Require People Skills!

WHEN: Join us in Twitter Chat Sunday Feb. 16 2014, 10AM ET. Hashtag: #peopleskills


Here’s a time converter to assist all of you around the globe in converting 10am ET to your local time.


Background: People Skills for Sincere Connections

We have contact with many people in our lives — in and out of work. Yet that is not the same as connecting with them. What makes for sincere connections? Attitude and desire? Most people agree.

Actual skill? Perhaps people skills? I say yes. What do you say? Join us this Sunday Feb. 16, 10am ET in #peopleskills Twitter chat to explore what it takes to make sincere connections.

Joining me as co-host is Samantha Hall, the author of the blog Tweetconnection which serves to connect ideas as well as people on Twitter. The focus of her writing covers self-parenting, the language of feelings, relational dynamics, abuse issues, leadership, and spirituality. She has a varied background spanning multiple industries including the military, healthcare, and the software industry.

Sincere Connections – This Week’s #PeopleSkills Chat!

Some people find making sincere connections very easy. They describe it as a natural fit. They claim all you have to do is be open and honest and you’ll connect. Others disagree. They tell stories of awkwardness and difficulty. They recount examples of meeting fakes and manipulators. Wow … quite a different picture.

Sincere connections are essential in life. Thus we take up this people skills topic in Twitter chat this Sunday Feb. 16th at 10am ET. Some questions to get us thinking in advance:

  • What is the difference between contact and sincere connections?
  • What if anything do you find challenging about making sincere connections?
  • How do you know if someone is being authentic?
  • Where do self-awareness and emotional intelligence help or hinder making sincere connections?
  • What drew you to people with whom you have sincere connections?
  • When have sincere connections had the greatest impact on you?



These are just some questions to get us thinking before we begin. Actual questions will post live during the chat.

So bring your personal perspective, your favorite beverage, and join me, Samantha Hall, and the people skills global chat community this Sunday Feb. 16, 2014, 10am ET on Twitter (hashtag: #peopleskills) to explore People Skills for Sincere Connections.

Join People Skills Community Twitter Chat: Reflection

My co-host for this week, Greg Richardson, suggested this topic. Greg is a university professor, leadership and organizational coach, and spiritual life mentor in Southern California.

  • What role does reflection truly play in people skills?
  • How do we balance reflection and the need for action?
  • Is reflection closer to analysis or intuition?
  • How open are you to reflection?
  • How do you develop the ability to reflect? Does it take focus and practice?
  • When has reflection helped you?
  • What have you learned about others through reflection?



These are just some questions to get us thinking before we begin the people skills chat this Sunday. Actual questions will post live during the chat.

Modern People Skills: Great Tips for Social Media Communication


Social media presents many challenges in communication. Perhaps the greatest challenge is that we are communicating with millions of people who don’t know us.

As we express our opinion to strangers we run head on into the challenge of first — and lasting — impressions. A negative tweet never really disappears from people’s view of us. The good news is that modern people skills can easily handle these challenges.

Modern People Skills Reminders for Social Media Greatness

Modern people skills apply the value of traditional civility to modern day communication challenges.


Create and preserve a positive authentic image!

  1. If it sounds like an order, it can turn people off. When we add the word please, it becomes a request.

  2. If a connection’s general behavior is a bother, we have the choice to unfollow/unfriend them. This may be a better choice than issuing them an order that everyone sees. One Twitter connection tweeted at me, stop tweeting quotes about …! Everyone could see his command. What impression of him does it create and leave with all those who read it?

  3. Many people see sarcasm as a form of anger. The less they know us, the greater the chance they see it this way when it’s directed at them. This traditional belief applies to modern people skills: If we can’t say something in a civil way, don’t say it now.

  4. Questioning people’s motives — even with formality — can sound accusatory. “May I inquire as to why you are doing this?” sets a condescending tone requesting justification. A more relaxed question can get the same information while projecting a positive image, “I’d like to understand this better. Can we chat or email about it?” Easy does it! Modern people skills honor everyone’s need for care and consideration.

  5. Stating opinion as fact can leave a negative impression; stating opinion as opinion can invite a healthy positive exchange of opinions! Mutual respect is still a key part of modern people skills.

  6. We leave a positive impression by owning our own feelings instead of assigning them to others. Statements like, “You are trying to discredit my opinion” can come across as insecure and childish. In the words of Eleanor Roosevelt: “Nobody can make you feel inferior without your consent.” If people are discussing and debating your opinion, engage in the discussion by creatively restating it and positively conversing with others.

  7. People see listening and discussing as a positive sign of strength and openness. Arguing, bashing, and condemning can leave scars on those bashed — and on our image — for a very long time.

  8. Take extra care in the early days of building relationships. Don’t assume that strangers will see complete frankness in a good light. It is actually a privilege others give us as we earn their trust.

    Relationships and the trust they build give interpersonal context to what is said. Without those preexisting relationships, raw authenticity can come across as rude, self-absorbed, boorish, rigid, disagreeable, and even bullying.


  9. Many would like to believe that authenticity — at any length — wins the day. Some go even further and claim that civility and authenticity are at odds. They aren’t. Modern people skills reminder: We can be authentic and civil at the same time!.


Civility provides a cushion of respect that enables listening and acceptance of an authentic honest message. Bluntness provides no cushion and our image can come crashing down! Modern people skills reminder: Words can woo or wound; create bonds, not scars.


What modern people skills reminder will you add to this list?


From my professional experience to your success,
Kate Nasser, The People Skills Coach™
