Coming in hot!

What do these 3 things have in common?

  1. Driving into the pick-up lane at your child's school.
  2. Showing up at the in-laws on Thanksgiving.
  3. Having a tough conversation at work.

Correct: You shouldn't 'come in hot' for any of them.    

You might know already that before a difficult conversation at work, you should think about the desired outcome, plan a strategy, and role-play the conversation with a colleague. 
Did you know you should also make time to vent? Getting emotional before is better than getting emotional during a conversation. 

*Coming in hot refers to an action performed at a fast, perhaps reckless, speed.  It's best left to military operations, not family gatherings or the workplace.
