Special Issue: Constantly Offended
The Red Diamonds Newsletter is an interview-rich weekly publication on: communication, decision-making, behavior, trust, conflict, professional relationships, courage, resilience, reputation and smarter crisis management. Speaking with bright, wise minds and accomplished, difference-making people.
Something significant is transpiring in our psychology when we’re constantly offended yet we often don’t realize what specifically that is or how to prevent it, navigate through it or replace the reactionary behavior.
“If you are on a continuous search to be offended, you will always find what you are looking for; even when it isn’t there.”
It costs us too in how we’re perceived, received and the outcomes in our relationships, professional and personal.
To gain knowledge, greater insight and recommendations on how to respond more wisely and successfully, I spoke to two experts. They all had something a little different to say. There is wisdom and some deep, interesting insights in what they have to share.
