Words

To sit quietly with a friend; listen to a child; engage with a prospective customer or to help an employee—to attend to their thoughts and feelings and to access their world through meaningful questions and active listening; to interact without judgement nor prejudice and provide timely words only when and if necessary—leaves a person feeling heard, validated and empowered. Just as a writer winnows their written words prior to publication, so too, a person can cull the spoken words prior to them exiting the mouth.
