Some people dislike being around optimists. They see them as dreamers who quietly demand that others smile and be happy.

Others love them. They see optimists as inspirational thinkers who sustain others with hope as they work to make things better. Phew .. what a large gap in definition and perception! So let’s explore optimism and see if we can close the gap.

As we think ahead to Sunday’s people skills chat, questions come to mind:

  • Why does this gap exist? Pessimists, optimists, realists?
  • What is your definition of optimism?
  • How does optimism and inspiration relate or differ?
  • If you had to choose between being around optimists or non-optimists, which would you choose and why?
  • How does optimism make you feel?
  • How does optimism influence outcomes?
  • What effect does optimism have on people skills?

These are just some questions to get us thinking before we begin the people skills chat this Sunday.

So bring your personal perspective, your favorite beverage, and join us from around the globe this Sunday in the USA — Sept. 22, 2013 at 10am EDT — to explore Optimism, Attitude, and People skills.

I also invite you to continue this chat by joining the Google+ People Skills Community to be a part of all the people skills discussions not just on Sundays but everyday 24×7.
