What is the “i” position – It is taking the time to connect with your thoughts feeling and emotions and sharing how what you read or saw impacted you and what thoughts and feeling came up for you. Some ways to start are: I really noticed that I…, When you said (this) I found these emotions came up for me….I was impacted by the…I was touched by…. I really resonated with…
For example after I saw the video David posted that ‘Sitting was the new smoking’. I might respond something like – I really loved seeing your passion, I found it very interesting to watch I noticed my own passion for my health and was grateful for the list of suggestions as I definitely want this to be more of a priority for me. Thank you

In my experience responding in this way is very powerful – it creates greater group connection and safety.

We encourage the use of open, supportive, encouraging, inclusive communication styles.
