Ep. 103: Why we fumble when talking to people different from us (and how to fix it) with Topsie VandenBosch

Get the episode transcript here

Have you ever encountered someone different from you, and then fumbled your way through interacting with them?

I know I have, and I included a few of those stories in this episode. From my observations — it seems like too often, we struggle to build authentic connections with people who are different from us, and I wanted to explore why that was.

So I sat down with Topsie VandeBosch, a mindset and emotional intelligence consultant for business leaders, and a licensed psychotherapist.

Topsie helped me understand why we behave in this way and gave some super practical tools for how to do better so we can authentically build relationships with people who are different from us — which is becoming critically important as demographics change in our society.
