Dear Hannah: LEarning (Role Players - Know Your Role)

May 06, 2019

Dear Hannah,

I have often been advised about, admonished for, and accused of using a pedagogical, lecturing tone - especially when I am directly involved in a conflict.

Point taken as one to grow on anytime someone gives that feedback - regardless of our conflict and their intentions.

I have also often been taken to task about that pedagogical, lecturing tone by people who - for whatever reason - object to my authority.

I have learned the hard way that while I may sound like an authority to many, I do not look like an authority to any.

Lots of us listen and think with our eyes - and are often easily fooled.
