We admire mic drop moments. It’s a moment in which something is powerful. It is well said and well timed. It’s impressive.
But perhaps those are the very moments in which we should not drop the mic. Of course, I’m speaking figuratively, but if we find ourselves in the influential posture, and what we’re saying seems to resonate, as long as we are humble through the experience, we should engage with others. We can invite conversation. We can share the microphone, not the make unnecessary chatter but to build relationships, to understand each other, and to share life.
The mic drop moments should be less about me and more about we. It’s less about one person saying something impressive and more about influencing and encouraging one other with truth, accountability, and authenticity.
Let’s not drop the mic; let’s share it.
