Speak to Loss
As you mobilize others for problem solving and solution generating, speaking to loss will be a necessary part of the process. There can be both hope and despair when tackling tough challenges. Engaging people through messages from your heart allows others to hear your values as they relate to theirs. A connection can be built that communicates the values at stake and potential losses. Listening from the heart and understanding what others are feeling can help more people overcome the fear of the loss that comes with change.
Questions to Ask Yourself
- What losses, perceived or real, are at stake with your challenge and for whom?
- How might you speak to those losses?
