Communication is a balance of giving and receiving, of sending out and allowing in.
As you engage in conversations and conduct your Monday meetings, notice the balance between how much space you fill with your expertise, opinions and ideas, and how much room you allow others to share their own.
How much are you speaking versus listening, being curious and waiting for others to share?
Trust is knowing silence is ok.
I don’t have to do it all, and that others, although quiet, have value to contribute.
Trust is believing I have value to contribute,
and that everyone, including my Self, deserves to hear my voice.
Whatever side you default to on this conversation teeter-totter, your growth lies on the other end.
Enjoy playing on the far side!
