Don't Let Frustration Build, Instead Speak Up

If events occur that seem unfair or incorrect, speak up.

It may be that the issue is unclear or there's information you don' know about.

When you speak up with respect, you may learn about the whole story.

On one occasion, troubling event after event occurred and I didn't speak up. I became frustrated.

On another occasion, when something seemed problematic, I spoke up and learned the facts of the matter which demonstrated that the issue was not a problem.

There's no crime in speaking up with respect and care.

And, there's no crime in asking questions.

Teaching/learning organizations are complex organizations. There's a lot going on all the time. When in doubt, ask and speak up. This will lead you in the right direction.
