In Monday’s post, we talked about Impact vs Intent and the importance of understanding that what you say and how it’s experienced by others are not always aligned. There are multiple truths in every interaction, and it’s important to be open to that reality – even when it’s hard.
When you embrace that your words may not have had the impact you intended, and own that realization, you’ll be much more effective and more deeply connected.
Staying open to
learning how you impact others
is the only way to truly understand them.
Today, we’re sharing some resources to help you think about the impact you may have vs the intent behind it:

We hope these are as helpful for you as they have been for us.
