Background on Chat: Being Truly Present vs. Being Around

We spend so much of our time around other people. In our personal lives and at work, we are with other people. Yet, how present are we, really? Are we just around each other or we really there for each other? There are big differences between being truly present and just being around. Come join us in our weekly global #PeopleSkillsChat this SUN. July 24th at 10am EDT on Twitter to explore and share your insights on how and why to be truly present for others vs. just being around. Many thx to global #PeopleSkillsChat moderator Jandis Price for this thought-provoking topic.
