Accepting people as they are – without asking them to change – is one of the most important things you can do to cultivate positive relationships. It sounds simple, but it’s not. Sometimes – with some people (you can probably think of one or two right now) – it’s much easier said than done. But it’s worth the effort because accepting people as they are can literally change your life.
Listen in on our Podcast as Larry and I explore what it means to accept people as they are and how it can change the quality of your relationships both at work and at home.
On all our podcasts and blog posts, you have an opportunity to talk back to us through comments and emails. We hope to hear from you! Until next time, manage to make a difference every day!
This is part of a series highlighting excerpts from our new book, Managing to Make a Difference. Next up: Go Ahead, Get Close to Your People. Connect with Kim Turnage and Larry Sternberg on LinkedIn to see the latest blog updates.
