You’re going to have to tell people things they don’t want to hear.
Maybe they did something to offend or hurt you, or perhaps you’ve noticed something in their life that is out of whack and needs addressing.
Whatever the reason, your love, and care for others will require you to have hard conversations.
How you go about doing so is paramount.
One of the best sets of questions comes from Scott Kedersha who will ask, “Can I share something with you?” or “Can I give you some feedback on some things I have seen in you?”
That’s exactly how you approach a difficult conversation.
Conversations go smoother when you lead by asking permission to share hard things.
Sadly, people more often choose the opposite approach.
Be different and stand out from the crowd.
Care and love enough not only to have the hard conversation but to do so with a soft and gentle touch.
‘You catch more flies with honey’ as they say.
