Session 3: When Someone Hates You

This week the boys discuss hatred and how you can handle those situations where you know that someone really doesn't like you, has maybe called you a 'massive effing tw*t' and really meant it, or straight out said "I hate you" and Bates blows his chance to go for a beer with Tom Hanks.

----more----     Update - Join the Coaching for Geeks Facebok group       Robin's a bit quiet and crackly (and had just had a tooth out) on this one so apologies for the sound (he's since got a fancy new mic).   This week Barker and Bates discuss::  
  • How do you know that someone hates you?
  • What can you do about it?
  • Why should or shouldn't you care?
  • How it can impact your behaviour and create a vicious circle
  • Techniques you can apply to resolve conflict
  • How you're not a mindreader and unable to climb inside peoples' heads.
