Book Review

White Fragility

Why It's So Hard for White People to Talk about Racism.

by Robin Diangelo

Improving our capacity to communicate also means putting our ego to the side so that we can receive messages, even when the packaging is not so pretty!  This book expanded my ability to accept difficult messages.

In the past, I’ve made a request to people close to me, “if you want to tell me something difficult to hear, please package the message respectfully.” Since reading this book, when I hear something I perceive to be hostile or accusing, my job is to work on not taking it personally, because getting the message is more important than the packaging!

The Ego Tango
What it’s about?

This is a collection of real-life stories I tell in my workshops as a communication coach.

Each story demonstrates either an external behavior or an internal mindset to help people become more effective and productive in their personal and professional relationships.

My hope is that you’ll be able to appreciate their humour and humanity while extracting the gems, applying them to your everyday interactions experiencing fewer hassles, and have more satisfying relationships.
