In the New York Times bestseller, Crucial Conversations, it is said that respect is like air. When it’s there, you don’t even notice. Remove it and it’s all you can think about. You know this to be true. When we trust those around us to be kind, respectful, sincere, and forthcoming in a way that strengthens relationships – virtually anything can be discussed openly in relative safety. Respect is not based on the presumption of agreement – quite the contrary. Respect exists when ideas are thoughtfully communicated with the intent of preserving the integrity of the relationship. The outcome of the exchange is largely immaterial, so long as everyone at the table works to maintain authenticity and reverence for one another.
Dr. Melva Green, host of the A&E hit TV series, Hoarders says, “ClutterFree Revolution does more than demystify the complexity of our stuff – it guides us through an honest conversation about what matters most.”
