People Skills Lessons Learned: Community Festival of Experience! #peopleskills

People Skills Lessons Learned: Experience From People Skills Community Members!
There are three ways to learn great people skills.
- Interact with people and get their reactions and feedback. These become your people skills lessons learned.
- Learn from experts who combine their own people skills lessons learned with lots of research and assessment of human interaction.
- Ask others about their people skills lessons learned and hear their insights.
As The People Skills Coach™, I do all three! And I am honored to have in the people skills online community many who also believe in continuous learning. We share our experiences every Sunday in #Peopleskills Twitter chat. We also discuss people skills in our Google+ community, our LinkedIn Group, and our newest venue on Facebook. Join us!
There’s more. Some community members have now blogged their people skills lessons learned in this first ever people skills community festival. So you can also engage here in the comments section and on their individual blogs.
