React – Reflect – Respond in a “Fast Forward” World

Listening to myself – and learning from my own disproportionate reactions

For many of us, in our business roles, we listen to customers or clients, day in day out, taking action for them efficiently and effectively. Our work often demands quick responses and there can be pressure to react immediately. It can can be hard to make time to draw breath and think creatively before we respond.

After Sarah’s father’s death a year ago, she found she couldn’t live in “fast forward” – she needed more space to listen to herself, learning from her own disproportionate reaction, taking time to respond.
