Listen In -> Confrontation for Those Who Don’t Like Confrontation #5: Clearing Up Misunderstandings

There’s a story of an elderly couple who were sitting outside on their front porch listening to the sounds of the countryside one evening.

The gentleman was listening to the crickets in the field behind the house. The woman was listening to the choir in the church down the lane.

At one point the woman exclaimed to her husband, “Isn’t that beautiful?!”

“Ah yes,” he replied. “And I understand they do it by rubbing their legs together.”

Misunderstandings happen.

In this week’s show, Claudia and I discuss the common reality of miscommunicating, misinterpreting, and other ways we get our wires crossed.

How often do we find ourselves getting all worked up over some perceived slight only to find out later that the other person was merely distracted by something completely unrelated?

How often do we find ourselves jumping to conclusions about a slipping project schedule only to discover that we didn’t know the parties involved had agreed to rearrange the order of events and everything was right on track?

Misunderstandings happen. The question is, are we alert enough and responsive enough to confront themĀ (i.e. talk calmly about) early on before they have a chance to spiral out of control?

Listen in.
