Intent via Impact (Blindspots?)

How do others experience me? How do others experience you? How does the audience experience the content and tone? As an Emotional Intelligence trainer the goal is to be as effective as possible with the content. The content is helpful, but the tone often feels and sounds sterile and unrealistic. The facilitators are way too agreeable and rarely disagree with a guest. Check out Adam Grant’s podcast “How to Love Criticism” I live in the Northeast which tends to be more intense, edgy and transparent. We don’t refer to the time in our life as a “season.” It’s all part of the journey. In my opinion, more people would connect if we heard more “real emotions” and not all messages delivered with smiles, rainbows and unicorns. Jesus wasn’t soft spoken 100% of the time. This would be more effective if it sounded more down to earth and show some real emotions like the negative ones we deal with daily; frustration, irritation, baffled, uneasy. Showing real emotion will make this more real and believable. The facilitators sound way too self-assured as if they have all the answers. How about having a podcast which isn’t selling a book. Just offer insights with Agape love.
