My lack of brutal honesty when dealing with others are interpreted by some as being dishonest, but I am not going to tell another person “You’re wrong” and be dismissive without some understanding of their perspective. There’s always a chance that I maybe just the one who’s wrong. Yes, it takes more time to probe, to reserve judgment, to diplomatically state my opinions, but there’s one thought that comes to my mind when engaging with others, especially when involving conflicts – “How will they¬†feel after our conversation?”
