Reference for Supportive Conversations

"When we are peer coaching, we send two strong signals that enable us to trust others and open up with them. One is candour and the other is caring. Together these two signals - when in combination - communicate the highest level of trust known to man. We feel comfortable, safe, and trusting of the person and their intentions - a powerful combination for enhancing our relationships at work and at home." – Judith E. Glaser, CreatingWE Institute
