Stupid Stuff Smart People Say is Part 3 of Justin Jones-Fosu's four-part Diversity, Equity and Inclusion series. 

Learn how to communicate with almost anyone as you engage both intent and impact. Also, learn practical strategies to have deeper dialogue and effective empathy with others.

During this Session Justin will cover:

  • How to communicate effectively with almost anyone
  • Why we need to stop "communication wars" and develop something together
  • How to grow in perspective-taking/sharing and avoid empathy no-no's (i.e. trying to always fix it, versus being present with people)

Session recorded on Oct. 12, 2021.
