Bréne Brown says...

Talking about people rather than to them is unkind

Not getting clear with a colleague about expectations because it feels too hard, yet holding them accountable or blaming them for not delivering, is unkind.

Bréne Brown says...

The lesson is simple: 

Don't look away. Don't look down. Don't pretend to not see hurt. Look people in the eye. Even when their pain is overwhelming. 

And, when you're in pain, find the people who can look you in the eye. We need to know we are not alone - especially when we are hurting.

Integrity is choosing courage

Integrity is choosing courage over comfort; choosing what is right over what is fun, fast, or easy; and choosing to practice our values rather than simply professing them. Today, I will choose courage over comfort.

Diversity is key

This is an empathy practice. By including diverse perspectives, we can start getting a full picture of the world, who is serve, what they need, and how to successfully meet people where they are.
