When communicating with your youth leaders, try to avoid the following:

By Passing

    Different words have different meanings.  Make your communication idiot proof so that no one can misinterpret it.



    We think we have said everything necessary after a few minutes. Always have a time for questions in order to check communication.


Guess Proneness

    Beware assigning hidden deeper motives to things.


Hardening of the Categories

    Beware over generalization, all teachers are alike, all _____ are alike, we need to recognize differences in people.


Either / Or Thinking

    Beware of categorizing things into boxes (i.e. “churches are either X or Y.”)



    Like blinders on horses, sometimes we can only see one way to do something. We need examine other possibilities.


Thalamic Reaction

    Think before you react.  Don’t jump to conclusions.


Misuse of Small Talk

    Do not give information through small talk.  It is not an effectivemeans to spread information as it may not be taken seriously


Misuse of Labels

    Labels are dangerous as they have a connotation of permanence and of being true 100% of the time.  Neither is true.


Misuse of “And”

      Beware adding responsibilities.. please do X


       Y.  “Additional”


    responsibilities “multiply” the work.
