Being bold with my conversations.
For better or worse I have never been one to hold back my thoughts. On my current journey, I am exploring taking that to the next higher level.
What this means for me is still coming from a place of respect for another individual. Asking that question that will really pull them up to the next level of thinking.
It is often the yes or no question. The question that will move you forward toward your goals.
Many times I find right after I leave a meeting I am flooded with great ideas of what I should have said. Did I freeze? I may have. When I freeze I need to give myself the clue that it is happening, and stop the freeze.
The freeze is the biggest reason that I don't ask the right question.
What do you do when you feel the freeze happen to you. How do you see it right there in that moment, and then side step it?
