Now, let's dive in! On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss: Do the re-engagement scripts we recommend in Level One of Advanced Human Dynamics ever grow stale? Don't people notice when they receive the same lines every year to stay in touch? Is there a way to tame the emotional outbursts you have whenever you receive criticism -- even when it's constructive and warranted? How should you handle that old school friend who always says "yes" to a coffee but never, ever buys you one back? How do you look for another job while still employed when your current job leaves you so depressed, anxious, and emotionally drained? Is it reasonable to suspect that the person who left someone else to be with you might now be cheating on you with someone else? How can you help your star employee stop overextending personal care toward clients when you know she's already stressed out with her own problems that should be addressed? Even though it mathematically makes sense to invest when returns are higher than the interest rate on the debt you're trying to pay off, is it the right move? What can you do to make the most of an awkward intro to someone at the top of your field so you can turn it into a solid new professional connection?
