The Patrick Madrid Show: January 29, 2024 – Hour 3

Patrick discussed strategies for handling insensitive remarks gracefully, shared personal stories on creating positive shifts in perception, and explored the welcoming of children, even the noisy ones, at Mass. We also delved into practical advice for those managing challenging situations, and emphasized the power of empathy and understanding. This conversation serves as a powerful reminder that the values we instill in our communities can have far-reaching effects on business culture and society at large.
