Background on This People Skills Inspiration Chat
In our previous two chats, we focused on identity. In the first one was all about what is your identity and what do you contribute to the play of life? Then last week we explored cultural heritage and its impact on people skills.
This week we explore identity from the aspect of what inspires people to help others. Specifically, when someone is in need, what inspires you to offer help? Is it in certain circumstances? Mostly in a crisis? Or when nobody else is helping? It’s an intriguing topic.
Join us March 23, 2014, 10am EDT in #peopleskills Twitter chat to explore people skills inspiration to help others. My co-host will be Dave Moore, Human Potential Technology motivational speaker and coach. Dave is also one of my great moderators of the people skills online community.

People Skills Inspiration to Help: What’s Yours?
To me this is a very interesting topic. Studies show that when people are in a crowd, they are less likely to jump in and help others. This bystander syndrome, also known as diffusion of responsibility, impacts everyone.
Join this discussion in global people skills Twitter chat (#Peopleskills) this Sunday March 23rd at 10am EDT. Some questions to get us thinking in advance:
- When are you most likely to offer help to others?
- Is it presumptuous or generous to help others before they ask?
- Does receiving help make you feel grateful or resentful?
- Have you ever had someone reject your help? Why did they?
- The bystander syndrome – why do you think it happens? What do you do in a crowd?
- What role does self-confidence play in giving/receiving help?
- Agree/Disagree: Natural leaders initiate an offer to help. Followers wait to be asked.
- How does helping others fit your view of life?
- Why do some people offer help while others wait to be asked?
- If you picture a great life, what role does giving/receiving help play?
These are just some questions to get us thinking before we begin. Actual questions will post live during the chat.
