Tongue Fu!

It's ironic, isn't it? We're taught math, science, and history, but we're not taught how to deal with people who are being unfair or unkind. The good news is, you can learn how to keep your cool—even when other people aren't—and respond diplomatically in sensitive situations, relays Sam Horn in this session. She will teach you what to say, when you don't know what to say! Sam's relatable, real-life stories and instantly useful recommendations can reduce stress and improve your relationships—on and off the job.
