One of the great benefits of getting involved in a major sporting challenge like our London-to-Brussels Bike Ride for Breast Cancer Care is the camaraderie, the team-building, the opportunity to pat each other on the back and say, well done!!
So, it is with some serious surprise that the opening salvos of communication have been filled with the noise of people taking the mickey out of each other!!
It must stop – we are a team.
So from now on, all abuse needs to be clearly couched in a positive and supportive manner.
“Sounds a bit lightweight to me” should be positioned as;
“I have always seen you as a hardcore and professional rider and so it’s a real shame that you are not able to join us as it might give the obviously false impression that you are something of a lightweight”
See how much better and more supportive that sounds.
Hope that’s helped!
