Time to upskill

Now that we are in the rush to go online for mediation, coaching, counselling and training, mostly, it’s going well and there is a gap that I am thinking about.

In-person meetings are more than just the sum of the words. There is an energetic presence that has no words or thoughts and we draw on that energy as part of our deliberations even if unconsciously. For example, noticing when someone is authentic.

Without that energetic in-person presence, there is a missing ingredient.

And, considering how we can be unknowingly recorded or listened into by someone we can’t see on the call, we all need to think about the gap between message sent and message received.

This calls for greater precision and accuracy in what we are articulating and how the other person is receiving it.

 

Maria’s Midweek Mindfulness

This week, the Dialogue Road Map has come to my rescue several times in tricky exchanges requiring an exact message to be delivered. In one instance, I am holding boundaries without making rules and being clear about my limits without implying punishment.
