Almost every day we’re hearing someone tell us how important it is to have more connected and authentic conversations.
We all seem to know this is true but somehow we seem to be having fewer of them.
Seth Godin, Bestselling Author and Marketing Expert, says we’re all stuck in what he calls “fast twitch mode.”
It’s tempting to spend all of our time in fast twitch mode. To scan the incoming, grab the urgent, set it up and slam it back. —Seth Godin
Certainly the pace of change and the demand to do everything faster, easier and better is helping to keep us stuck in “fast twitch mode,” but there may be an even bigger and more limiting factor.
Perry Marshall, World Renowned Business Consultant and Author, has shifted a lot of his attention to the following question:
How do you hold conversations that nobody wants to have, because of political correctness or stupidity spasms or hidden agendas? —Perry Marshall
I’d suggest from my own experience and the many people I work with that it’s simply not possible or safe to have the bigger conversation in far too many workplaces.
You’re not having them because it’s politically incorrect to have them. You’re not having them because someone is afraid of what the conversations might reveal or what they might have to give up. It’s a long list.
But what if you choose to try this instead.
I’d like you to invite you to be part of the Exploring Forward-Thinking Workplace conversation where it’s safe to say what you think and have the bigger conversation.
Every voice has something to contribute that benefits everyone that’s a vital part of the whole.
