Global #PeopleSkillsChat Topic: Hearing Truth Without Defensiveness

So often in interactions, people get defensive instead of hearing truth. They perceive a threat to their ego because they are thinking only of themselves instead of others. Hearing truth without defensiveness is vital to positive interactions, individual growth, career performance, and overall results in personal and professional life.

To that end, I invite you all to join us in People Skills global Twitter chat (Hashtag #PeopleSkillsChat) this Sunday, Dec. 8th, 2019 10am EST to share your insights and experience with hearing truth without defensiveness.
