Develop Tolerance

How does one develop tolerance? J. C. Maxwell said that “Tolerance” is a result of relationship. When we truly value and spend time with people, we become tolerant of each other. Put yourself in their shoes, spend time with them and they’ll feel the same toward you.
I have noticed this tolerant attitude not only with myself but also with students I work with. No matter how different a student is to the norm of a classroom, the more the students learn to know about each other’s uniqueness, the more tolerant they are with each other. This tolerance requires a mindful leader, an educator who values the uniqueness of each student and what they bring to the group.
This tolerance is not only important to students but also to employees, managers, and families! Relationships, relationships, relationships!
