People skills Twitter Chat TOPIC: #PeopleSkills for No Regret.

WHEN: Sunday May 5, 2013 10AM EDT/7am PDT.

Here’s a time converter to assist all of you around the globe in converting 10am EDT to your local time.

Background on This Sunday’s Chat

Jackie Hooper, author of The Things You Would Have Said, moved me with her book. She received thousands of letters from people who wanted to express regret for things they had said or loving things they wish they had said but didn’t. It got me thinking about the value of reversing the regret process and considering our words before we speak.

There are many aspects to this topic. My mind is full of questions like …

  • What benefit does someone get from saying hurtful words?
  • Why do people take so long to express regret for hurtful words?
  • How does expressing regret make you feel?
  • How does expressing regret to those you hurt make them feel?
  • Where does emotional intelligence play into expressing loving words?
  • How can we learn to suppress hurtful words and speak with more care?
  • Is it more acceptable in our society to say very loving words or hurtful words? Why?
  • How can you make it more OK to express truly caring words at work?
  • People who often speak lovingly ___________________________.
  • Which people skills build bonds for caring interaction?
  • What have you learned personally from regret?
  • Is it tougher to regret hurtful words you’ve said or loving words you haven’t said?
  • Does delaying apology/regret make it tougher to accept?
  • What brings people to hurt those that never hurt them i.e. bullying?
  • Why do people stand by silently when they witness verbal bullying?
  • Would regret come more quickly if we spoke up?
  • How can people skills help prevent regret?

We won’t be able to discuss all of these questions and thus I will make a final selection before the chat. Tell me which ones you like the most or suggest other questions in the comments section below!
