We Are Not Always Communicating Well
It's a lot clearer in our heads
When we communicate with others, we assume people understand (because we do). But things don’t always come across the way we mean them.
Consider how other people might perceive your words.
Some people love a “surprise” or a “challenge” or an “opportunity.” Other might dread them.
Some people will tune out if you don’t start with the bottom line; other people might need you to walk them through the situation or the analysis to see why you want to do something.
Ask questions to confirm the other person’s understanding.
And hold off on important conversations until both of you have had your coffee kick in.
