When our response doesn’t completely delight them, how do we respond?
Oops, can we stay flexible and open?
Relaxing, letting go, and even having a freshly-squeezed-orange juice-laugh puts everything back in perspective. We enter a friendly space where we trust our connection to the person. Together we can sort everything out.
Laughing with you,
