Do People Feel Safer When You're There?






This might sound like a weird question... but it is an important one!

Think about it...

Do they?

If they do Why?

Or if they don't, than Why Not?

I don't mean just physically safer... I'm talking emotionally safer too. Like if they needed you, you'd have their back.

What do you think is necessary to have someone FEEL Safer in your presence? 

Is it how you look?

What you say (or don't say)?

What you do (or don't)?

How you hold yourself?


A Challenge...

Here's a challenge for you...

Try observing yourself today and see if you can pick up on things that you can do to help communicate (without directly saying it) to people around you that you have their back if they need it.

It could be something as subtle as you being more alert, straightening your posture and paying attention.

It could be something like you looking approachable enough to talk to.

It could be about you listening more attentively.

It could be you stepping in and asserting yourself even when you weren't asked.

It could be not butting in when you could!

It could be seeing things that are typically ignored...

Or...

Ignoring things that are seen!

It could be helping someone save face...

Or...

Calling someone out who is out of line...


The Protector's #1 Tool

The #1 Tool that ANY protector has is Themselves!

That's right, its not a technique, or a weapon...

It's our...

Identity
Attitude
Awareness
Influence &
Action

That's right it's US!

But You're Not Done Yet...

Nope, not quite...

Tomorrow I want you to post in our Facebook PeaceWalker Community Group https://www.facebook.com/groups/1790355384325766/ the ONE THING that you did to communicate to someone you have their back. 

Let's call it the PeaceWalker Deed of the Day.



This isn't to brag! It's to help us get in the habit of (subtly or directly) of being a better protector... A PeaceWalker! It's about the little things! 

Working on the little things make it possible to do the big things!!


Remember...

If you are looking for greater skill when dealing with the full spectrum of human conflict (Ethical, Emotional, Verbal, Physical, Social) you may consider checking out the up coming PeaceWalker Course that will be opening for registration later this summer.

It will give you the tools to know what to do when nice isn't working!

More on that as we move through the summer...

In the meantime..


You got this,
