The Civility Mirror means when I am preparing for an interaction and thinking about the words I choose, I think carefully, especially when it comes to how it might make another person feel. I don’t change my conviction, but my delivery to minimize how my words might cut someone personally. The Civility Mirror challenges me to plan ahead and also to reflect. I will often use my Civility Mirror after a communication exchange and self-reflect on what I could have done better.
