Background on Chat: Comparison Traps

In our daily lives, we can be tempted to compare ourselves with others. Yet, it’s a temptation fraught with overt and hidden risks. Comparison traps can creep into a person’s thinking and change mindsets, thinking, choices, teamwork, interactions, and lives. Because these comparison traps impact human interaction, we take this up as a topic in our global #PeopleSkillsChat this SUN. Jan. 30th 10am EST on Twitter. Join us and share your perspective and experiences on what happens when we compare ourselves to others.
