Season 2/ Episode 23: How To Tell Someone They Can’t Dance or Do Other Activities Well
In All Seriousness
Do What You Love and Be Nice
In this week’s podcast episode, Jill and Tony discussed how to tell someone they aren’t good at what they enjoy doing.
Jill told listeners that if you feel the need to tell someone they aren’t good at something, then choose your words and tone wisely. She said it is all about how you present it. Otherwise, if the activity brings the person joy, let them have it.
Tony, on the other hand, declined to give any advice because he has been guilty of blurting out when someone, including Jill, can’t do something well. He claims he prefers to just not say anything now.
What do you think? Is telling someone they aren’t good at something they enjoy doing necessary? Why or why not? Leave your answers in the comments section. We love hearing from you.
