donhornsby's curator insight, February 23, 9:39 AM
(From the article): Use the power of "I" statements.

Communication becomes more productive when you avoid stating your thoughts as facts. For example, instead of saying, "This project is a failure," you might say, "I am very concerned about the sustainability of this project." Try to avoid "you" statements ("You haven't done anything") that set up a cycle of judgment and defensiveness. Instead, say, "I can see there's still a lot to be done."  

Cameron Larsuel's curator insight, February 23, 10:06 PM

Communication is key to leveraging the potential of the human experience.
