Whenever I go to events or conferences, I don't try to meet the most people, I try to meet the right people. It's usually just one to three people and today's guest was one of those people from an event I attended in 2018, Nikki Innocent.
Nikki's big truth was around it being the right time and place right now for anyone to be here, in this particular vessel, creating change in one way or another.
From there we talked about bearing witness to other people's stories, what it brings up for us and how to be with discomfort when it arises.
We're also both communication nerds so we spent a good bit of time getting into the difference between tone policing and methodology, self-policing, the many polarities we live in, cancel culture, what progress actually looks like and conversations stoppers, deflection tactics and accountability.
We talked about the components of a real, effective apology and how to embrace and show up as who we are now as we grow.
If you're a fan of nuance, context and complexity, you're going to love this one. Share it up and let us know what lands for you!
