The Shortest Course in Human Relations

In here, we find numerous useful, easy to apply nuggets to fix you first. It is a challenging enough responsibility to change yourself from the inside -> out first; so why would you criticize, condemn, and complain, let alone be a wet blanket for someone else?  

Making mistakes is part of personal change & growth; learn from them = fail forward. Build your EQ & AQ.

Edification & being able to offer sincere appreciation (such as a compliment) - crucial to develop a following that has nothing to do with positional leadership ( which is the weakest of the 5 levels )

Asking questions instead of issuing orders - how very valuable!  Engage and bring out the inner/hidden genius of those whom you interact with!

Saying ‘please' and 'thank you - why these words are much less common today is a true mystery. Don’t be part of the crowd; stand out & use them every single time you have the opportunity!

We > I.  That’s an easy one :)
