What makes a conversation courageous? You could say it’s when there’s a risk involved. And I wouldn’t argue with you. But more specifically, I think unpredictability makes a conversation courageous. When you keep talking, moving through chaos and confusion, learning with each step and moving forward. That takes courage. And it’s very tempting to reach for security or invent artificial security.
We grow by operating on the outskirts of our capacity. We also fail by doing that, but we learn more from our failure than our easy wins.
So have some courageous conversations. It might hurt a bit – but i would call it growing pains.
