Under-Promise and Over-Deliver…Under-Talk & Over-Listen

by Rick Baker

The Thinking Behind the Tweet

While people are very busy, somehow they manage to remember the promises you didn’t deliver on. And, if people are talking there is a reason for it. I mean, people have reasons for saying things even if the things they are saying are not on the same topic as the things you are thinking while you could be listening while they are talking. Rather than thinking all that stuff by yourself and waiting for them to stop talking so you can get your thoughts delivered…listen.

Only when comforable with your communication will Egos help you bring about the changes you desire.

Egos are nitpickers. 

Egos need to be stroked.

Egos don't like unpleasant surprises.

Egos always bring their baggage.

Communication style influences people much more than logic.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

According to Chip Heath and Dan Heath ['Decisive', 2013] "When the researchers compared whether process or analysis was more important in producing good decisions - those that increased revenues, profits, and market share - they found that "process mattered more than analysis - by a factor of six.""

Good Decision Making relies on good decision-making processes.

Good Influencing relies on good influence-making processes.

What was that you said about listening?

Is it possible the more you talk about listening the less people are inclined to do it?

If you must speak to the topic should you speak softly and carry a big stick?

How do we rebuild trust? One small, well-thought-out, personal, positive step at a time.

Maybe you care about the damage trust has experienced?

Maybe you want to repair that damage?

Maybe you do not know how?

People know what's going on in my head...my thoughts are important to them...time for my wake-up call.

If you think communication is easy, you're dreaming.
