I can hardly believe that I have Bob Burg on the show today! We’re talking today about those soft skills that are so difficult to teach. You know what soft skills are, right? It’s those personal attributes that enable someone to interact effectively and harmoniously with other people. Attributes like kindness, compassion, caring, giving, and the main one we are focusing on today - empathy. These skills are hard to teach, but there are ways you can improve them and most of the time, it starts with forgetting about yourself and focusing on other people! See how easy this is gonig to be?
These “soft” skills in life are really essential to maintaining good relationships throughout life, including empathy. Bob is gifted in teaching how to focus on real empathy and helping us be better people. You don’t want to miss this inspiring conversation, so join us!
