Background on This Chat Topic: People Skills Expectations & Assumptions
Last Sunday in #Peopleskills chat, we discussed deepening connections. It raises additional questions about expectations and assumptions in human interaction.
Are expectations the hidden obstacle to great interactions? Or are they the force that brings people together in the first place? What about assumptions? Do they have a positive or negative effect? JOIN us this Sunday April 12th, 2015 at 10am EDT to discuss expectations & assumptions.

People Skills Expectations & Assumptions
Very few people are free of expectations & assumptions. Perhaps no one. Given that, how do expectations & assumptions impact human interactions in business, leadership, teamwork, customer service and in life’s deep relationships?
Some questions to get us thinking in advance. Actual questions will post live during the chat.

- When we expect a great deal of ourselves, __________________.
- What would human interactions be like if we had no expectations?
- Expectations are the _________ to great human interaction.
- What are the advantages and disadvantages of leaders’ expectations of others?
- What relationship is there between assumptions and expectations? Any?
- How do our personal values affect assumptions and expectations of others?
- What assumptions about others have helped humanity and which ones have hurt humanity?
- Assumptions, gossip, and groupthink: Are they connected? If so, how can we stop the damage?
- Does communicating expectations and assumptions make them OK? Or do they live on?
- How can we capture the benefits of expectations and minimize the risks?
- What are the key people skills for working through diverse expectations and assumptions?
