In this episode we talked with Dr. Debra Dupree about topics like “Leadership” vs. “Management”, brainstorming, suspending judgement, death by meetings, how individuals like to be approached, team building, emotional intelligence (www.talentsmart.com). She really knows her stuff – there’s some pretty important things in here about IQ vs EQ!
“Hi, I’m Debra Dupree with Relationships at Work. My father and grandfather ran a family business in the Midwest, buying and selling dairy cattle.
I grew up on the younger end of 9 children, to be seen and not heard. With a combination of German and Norwegian heritage, we didn’t deal well with conflict much less express real emotion. I saw my fair share of damaged relationships, lost opportunities and a lack of voice to speak up. The family business didn’t survive.
I share this story as this early business exposure and the dynamics of family conflict significantly influenced what I’ve grown up to be. Over the last 30+ years, I’ve been fascinated with makes people tick…at work and at home. I became a therapist…a mediator…a professor and doctor of psychology…and now a public speaker and author.
I now help people recover from the drama and trauma in their past and discover positive karma.”
