The gift of granting another permission “to enter” our sphere of influence is one the biggest gifts we can give another. By enter, I mean someone gives us the OK to be authentic, to say what is really there for us to say in a meaningful way in the space between us. I can only work effectively with clients that give me the permission to make a difference in their lives. I can only grow deeper in a friendship if there is permission to be present and communicate from what is there. Giving someone the permission to make a difference with you is maybe what makes the biggest difference, period!
