Speak honestly and frankly about difficult subjects.

In Finland, when we want to have a conversation about a difficult topic we say: put the cat on the table!  This means talking openly and honestly, and being vulnerable.  We also put the cat on the table when we want to bring up an issue that may be uncomfortable to talk about, but needs to be discussed. 

Some rules when the cat is on the table:

* Be honest

* Be open

* Be respectful

* Listen well

* Be direct

* Be vulnerable

* Forgive
