One of today’s challenges is deciding how to communicate matters of consequence, whether in business affairs or personal matters. The question here is which situations deserve real face-to-face communication. Although we live in a culture where messages with the potential to instigate nuclear disaster are “tweeted,” as an eternal optimist I invite us to take the need for more enlightened communication into our own hands. So, let’s talk about the (sometimes) forgotten importance of real facetime.
As Ghandi said, “Be the change”… starting with revisiting how, in matters of consequence, we can have the courage to speak our truth, in person, with heart. Here, I offer a practice that I have found helpful for determining when and how to have a face-to-face discussion of a Matter of Consequence (MOC) that supports the most optimal outcome.
