SORT BY Relevancy
Patricia Hirsch, MCC, interviews Gail Rappolt, PCC. In what ways do I keep myself stuck by not having the difficult conversations that would truly make a difference to me and the other? Why do I assume that raising something that has been concerning me will have a negative outcome? I demean others when I deprive them of feedback that lets them know the impact of their behavior on me. When I give feedback that is descriptive, situational and owns the behavior’s impact on me and when I give it in the spirit of love – not blame nor defensiveness, I offer a gift. Ironically it is not only a gift to the other – it is a gift to self as well. I have taken action and often that action releases the tension and anxiety created by the situation and allows me to let go it. Join Gail to learn a feedback tool and some specific skills of preparing and delivering feedback that will help create a positive outcome for the conversation you need to have.

When is a freemason not a freemason?
Freemasonry is vulnerable to mockery but which is worse. The balefulness of cowans or the indifference of a Brother who fails to live out his obligations? We owe each entered apprentice the training and guidence he requires to help him achieve this masonic goals, to reach his masonic potential. When we put this out to a group of freemasons, the room files with conjecture, criticism and defensiveness. So I'll not do that. What I offer are some ideas to move the discussion along.
It is plausible, the dynamic tensions we experience within the lodge are necessary to maintain the orbit of masonic principles. Mystery of freemasonry is the oxygen we breathe. The individual mind is a fertile ground that fights the suffocation of compliance to assert the need to calculate those aspects of experience needed to achieve our goals.
Some people find a symphony discordant and unfamilar. Others find the achievement of symphonic music captures them. I cannot add to that conversation without saying, if we do not appreciate an achievement because he have not learned it's importance, then the risk is not so much toward the object of achievement as it is to limiting growth. Taste? Good manners? Culture? Refinement? Acceptance? Flexibility? Where is the Bigger Man when you need him?
I could use some help here brethren. We should talk...

THE IMPORTANCE OF CLEARLY COMMUNICATING YOUR FEELINGS AND NEEDS: Relying on mind-reading to get your needs fulfilled creates feelings of chronic anger and contempt towards your partner, conditions which will almost invariably lead to the demise of your relationship. To keep your relationship strong and happy, it’s up to you to make your needs clearly known. As the authors of Couple Skills, Matthew McKay, Patrick Fanning, and Kim Paleg (hereafter referred to as MFP), put it, nobody is in a better position to understand your needs than you are:
“You have a right to ask for the things you need in a relationship. In fact, you have a responsibility to yourself and your partner to be clear about your needs. You are the expert on yourself. No one else, not even your partner, can read your mind and know what you need in the way of support, intimate contact, time alone, domestic order, independence, sex, love, financial security, and so on.”
So if articulating your needs isn’t something you’ve felt comfortable doing, how do you start going about it? And how do you do it in a way that doesn’t create defensiveness and anger, and offers the best chance of your partner being willing to listen and fulfill that need?
