Steve Jobs & Conscious Communication

October 15, 2011

What happens when you practice Truth-Telling in your relationships?

Do you withhold your truth for fear of hurting the other person’s feelings?

Or, even deeper, are you afraid to feel the impact your truth has on the other person?

In this clip, Ali & Craig practice some basic non-violent communication with members of the team.

Read the Forbes article about Steve Jobs being a jerk… and chime in!

I have to agree with this, even though it means sometimes I might be on the receiving end of this kind of truth telling. We all make mistakes and need to learn and grow from them and know what is expected of a team member – client – partner …. is critical.

I rarely tune in and even I knew you were pissed that numbers weren’t being posted. Do you really think Renee didn’t know this before you tried this new way of saying it?

To be honest if you have to explain the same thing six different ways as if you’re talking to a 2 year old, doesn’t that tell you that the “problem” isn’t lack of communication?

Craig was using the situation with Renee and the reports to illustrate the communication for people watching. I think it was clear to everyone (including Renee) that Craig was pissed about the reports before the communication. This was an exercise for illustration purposes so we can all learn to communicate our truths as openly and directly as possible.
