Dangerously Divided Times

I'd like you to think of some examples of divides in your life.

It could be with a friend or relative that has radically different beliefs about politics or social causes. Or it could be someone at work that you just strongly disagree with. The differences have created a divide.

The reason I want you to think about them is because we’re having an important discussion today about how to have fearlessly curious conversations in dangerously divided times.

Actually that’s the subtitle of Mónica Guzmán's book. Mónica joins us to talk about her deeply insightful book I Never Thought of It That Way: How to Have Fearlessly Curious Conversations in Dangerously Divided Times.

If you feel the polarization in culture and in the workplace is just too daunting to do anything about, Mónica's book is packed with practical ideas that you can start implementing right away. This remarkable woman is on a mission to help us address the divides in our life--and she’s been making a difference. I consider this a must-read book and can’t wait to introduce some of the ideas in today’s discussion.

Project Management for Students

If you’ve listened for a while, you’ve heard me talk about our e-learning program entitled Getting Stuff Done: Project Management for Students. The feedback from the program has been fantastic but here’s what I want you to know. We radically reduced the price to just $49 US. We want to make it available to as many people as possible. If you have a high school or college-age student in your life and want to invest in their ability to lead and deliver, you can do that now for an even better price. Give them a head start to more confidently lead and deliver. Learn more and get a copy for them at PeopleAndProjectsPodcast.com/GettingStuffDone. Thanks!
