Defining Moments

How I responded to discouragement


    Messages from Peers:

    Not to speak my mind as it can come across too pushy.

  • How I responded:

    Think through what you say before you say it. Be mindful of your words and how they might sound or come across. Goal is to encourage dialogue; not shut it down. Listen first -always!
