Things on Tuesday: Adult Communication Edition

 

Don’t ask.

 

Things I hate about adult communication:

  1. Not enough people engage in it.
  2. People who say they want to talk to you but won’t tell you what the issue is because they “don’t want you to worry.”
  3. Two words: passive-aggressive
  4. One word: meetings
  5. True of communication in all phases of life, George Bernard Shaw’s brilliant quote: “The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place.”

Things I love about adult communication:

  1. The occasions when it is clear we all agree on the rules and it actually happens!
  2. Honesty
  3. Clarity
  4. Getting to a better place or making something good or important happen because of it.
  5. Doing it
