Co-Author, Treating People Well: The Extraordinary Power of Civility at Work and in Life
Lea Berman served as White House Social Secretary and Special Assistant to the President from 2004–2007, was Chief of Staff to Second Lady Lynne Cheney from 2002–2003 and, previously, Social Secretary to the Vice President. She is the creator of the blog America’s Table, and lives in Washington, DC.
In TREATING PEOPLE WELL, Berman and Bernard draw from their unique access inside the White House, where every moment is high stakes and high visibility, to show how civility is crucial to a successful and rewarding life. In our technology-burdened, politically divided world, it feels all too easy to make a misstep. Here are concrete tips on how to develop confidence, be consistent, use humor, listen carefully, radiate calm, resolve conflicts quickly, be honest without being cruel, cultivate loyalty, own your mistakes, work with difficult people, and attend to details. Lea and Jeremy honed these skills over years, striving to apply kindness, empathy, and genuine thoughtfulness to achieve success and personal fulfilment. Treating People Well demonstrates how you can do the same.
