Mark Oestreicher and Mark Riddle

Addressing these things requires 1. Awareness, and 2. Being proactive.

Six Ways to Be Proactive
1. Be committed to unearthing assumptions through communication

The Concept of “Curiosity of Positive Intent”
-In the midst of tension, taking a humble position of wondering what is motivating their thoughts, feelings, actions, words
-asking what is their positive intention, they’ve got some reason they see as good about why they’re acting in the ways they are

2. Assess your situation.

3. Develop a strategy to manage expectations.

4. Address your own behavior patterns.

5. Be yourself.

6. Stop giving lip-service to nourishing your soul. Do it or get out.
-make it a priority bc you can not minister without that core relationship being healthy
