Happy New Year, welcome to the first educational podcast and blog of 2021. I hope you are well and keeping safe in our 3rd lockdown caused by the Coronavirus. You already know I pride myself on delivering and adding as much value as I possibly can. This podcast with Hannah Wilson, co-founder of Diverse Educators will be no different.
My favourite part of the podcast is when we discussed the idea and impact of ‘Saying the Wrong Thing’.
It can be a difficult subject to talk about, and I believe many people avoid the hard conversations because they don’t want to look bad. I can understand this thought process because when a mistake does occasionally happen, people may jump on it and react in a negative manner.
I think this should happen in some instances, and people need to be held accountable for what they say, but the context of the conversation matters. For example, in the ‘Dreams 2 Reality’ podcast we discuss everything from racism, sexism, mental health as well as the more common topics on the podcast like mindset.
When discussing issues and challenges I am aware of but not fully educated on, then I like to ask the questions and listen. I could avoid this altogether, as I could make myself look uneducated in front of thousands of people.
However, as I have the platform, I believe it is necessary. We should all remain curious, ask questions if we are not sure, and listen to understand, not listen to respond. I think Hannah explained this perfectly; we will make mistakes, and if we do, we can always correct them and learn.
