In conversation with Prof @DollyChugh last night about the psychology of good-ish people, moving from believer to builder, and always having a growth mindset. Excited to read the book! #ThursdayThoughts pic.twitter.com/cekUJCTNDQ— Dasle Kim (@daslekim) September 6, 2018
In conversation last night with Professor @dolly.chugh about the psychology of good-ish people, moving from believer to builder, and always having a growth mindset. One powerful call to action that all of us can do to create a more diverse, inclusive, equitable world? Learn people’s names. When you don’t know how to say a person’s name, you avoid the person entirely - instead, appreciate that every name has a story. How can you learn about someone through their name? As someone with a pretty unique name, I found myself realizing that this is such an easy yet impactful way to open up, be honest with others, and learn. So excited to read “The Person You Mean to Be!”
