Challenge me for sure. I love it. It clarifies how we see each other and the world. It defines what needs to be learnt by you and or me.
Be sure to know what you are talking about though first.
Challenge from a place of knowing all the facts of what is being discussed - open up before coming down hard on the issue.
First. Ask questions. Gain clarity. Then and only then challenge tentatively with grace and an explorative heart.
If you find yourself challenged by someone who had limited information.
Be gracious. Be tentative. Ask questions to explore their understanding. Don't defend. Don't create a divide. Show compassion and generate clarity.
