We are the world. Will you make it better?
You. Me. Anyone. Everyone. Neighbor. Parent. Teacher. Lector. Mayor. Majority leader. Committee chair. Celebrity newscaster. Clerk. CEO. We are the axes in every place in every nation. Will you use your influence as a trainer or leader or coach to help people see, hear and respond to the world more openly, resourcefully and persistently? Take the next step.
Lean into conflict. Lead out of drama.
Disclosing the motives behind our questions increases transparency, integrity, authenticity, and effective communication. It also increases the chance of positive conflict because it doesn't allow passive-aggressive behavior.
Persistence is about follow-through on promises, commitment to boundaries, adherence to standards, perseverance towards goals, and the discipline of optimism. These can all be done in compassionate ways.
