Do you encourage effective two-way communication, or rush in because you think it’s up to you to fix someone else’s mistakes?

Yep, me too.

This informative three-minute video helped me understand some of my take-charge motives. Hope it does the same for you.

2. What part does self-blame play in my scene-stealing need to control others?


Trust is the glue of life. It’s the most essential ingredient in effective communication. It’s the foundational principle that holds all relationships. Stephen Covey
