    These people skills truths not only apply in customer service and leadership but in life. Parents, friends, teammates on a sports team, you name it. I especially appreciate “humans respond to kindness” as it’s too often forgotten how much of an impact kindness can make – it’s not weakness. I’m also reminded of what I learned from Arbinger that ties in well with your insights here. Any behavior, hard or soft, can be done with a heart at peace or a heart at war. Our way of being when we deliver what we have to say matters as much as what we say.

    Will share, Kate!

      Hi Alli,
      Your insights always expand the views on human topics. We both will continue to sing out the message that kindness isn’t weakness.

      Many thanks for the Arbinger quote about a heart at peace or at war. Spot on.
