    Remember to Close the Communication Loop

    Remember to Close the Communication Loop

    Communication is two-way: message sent and message received. Sometimes the confirmation that a message was received is automatic. Sometimes it is not, and we have to make an effort to send that "loop closing" message. In this episode, I'm looking at times when "closing the loop" does not happen automatically, and what you can do about it.

    Beware of Either-Or Interpretations

    Beware of Either-Or Interpretations

    Viewing complex problems – like behavior change and goal achievement – triggers a problem for many of us. The problem is known as “binary bias” or the tendency to view the problem and it’s solution(s) through the lens of right vs wrong. This either-or viewpoint creates a communication problem that I’m addressing in this week’s episode.
