A little bit about Diane's philosophy of "small talk:"
Imagine a world where people feel accepted, valued and understood and everyone is approachable and open to making small talk that leads to closer relationships and more significant results (more commitment, more collaboration, more sales, and less hate, less prejudice, etc.).
This perfect world is based on the beliefs that all human beings are unique and have and give value. Face-to-face interactions are important and can not be completely replaced by technology-enabled communication. Small talk is not just a means to an end; it is a way to make people feel accepted and free to connect without judgment.
