Leadership: the ability to communicate your beliefs clearly so others with the same beliefs can be inspired to follow.
‘I’m sorry you didn’t understand me’ is NOT an apology. It’s an INSULT. ‘I’m sorry I wasn’t more clear.’ NICE. Apology accepted.
You teach people how to treat you by what you allow. Make it clear what IS and is NOT acceptable. The treats will improve.
Love is best expressed in whispers. Anger, too.
Admit it when you’re wrong and when you’re right, be modest. This helps them remember you were right and forget you were wrong.
Wifi is one way to connect. Telling someone WHY they’re important to you is better. Now go connect.
Flattery vs Gossip. Gossip: what they say behind your back but not to your face. Flattery: to your face but not behind your back.
Think before you speak and you won’t freak at the critique. I highly recommend this technique.
Together is my favorite place to be when we talk about things upon which we agree or disagree without getting mad at you or me.
Sometimes people just want to talk. They don’t want your answers. Your listening will help them find their own. Help them. Listen.
Asking, ‘Did I just put a damper on this conversation?’ can keep the damper from escalating to a thumper-dumper for you.
