In a world where listening deeply continues to be a challenge for most of us, this episode is a great reminder of the power of listening both widely and deeply. We also explore the meaning (and impact) of being an introvert, extrovert, and ambivert. And if you have never heard of the "highly sensitive person" - you will want to hear our discussion about that! Dr. Michael Alcee was an amazing, highly-talented guest (WHO HAS ALSO DONE A TEDX TALK!!) on the episode today and I am honored he said "yes" to my invitation t join me. Like, listen, share, and comment!
