Desiderata

before you post…

  • assess your comfort level
  • find comfort in discomfort (Stay engaged - the journey is worth the effort.)
  • be vulnerable
  • address strong emotions
while in discussion…
  • Reiterate.
    Restate to limit misunderstanding.

  • Contemplate.
    Move away from immediate emotional responses towards a deeper understanding of the topic opened up by the contributions of others.

  • Respire.
    Take a breath to settle thoughts and emotions during difficult conversations.

  • Communicate.
    Speak with compassion and thoughtfulness. Assume good intentions. Seek understanding. If challenge is appropriate (be careful!), challenge the statement rather than the person who said it.
