“Last week in the breakout I shared that I learned a co-worker was speaking misinformation to our new boss about some work we did together.

I had some data that could paint a different picture, exposing him in the process, but was unsure if I should share it.  Using the formation framework, my breakout partners helped me see that I couldn't answer the question about action, until I understood the concept of my motivations.  What truly were the motivations behind my actions and how does that impact my relationship with God?  Spending the time to get clear on what my motivations were made the right decision a no-brainer.  (P.S.  I didn't share the data and best of all felt peace with that decision.  As it turns out, the boss learned of the co-worker's character in a different way!)”
