    #9 I agree, Lisa. Some people do relish a good row, however. Personally, I'd rather not introduce the stress into my life. In my view, life is meant to be enjoyed, so why waste your time being combative and stirring up crap with people? I can't be bothered. I only take people to task on things that really matter and when I think I may actually be able to influence someone's thinking. Sometimes people say the most outrageous things on posts. My non-response has nothing to do with agreement or disagreement and everything to do with my value for personal happiness and peace of mind. I'd rather not let a troll get on my cloud. @Lisa Vanderburg @Nicole Chardenet

    Great advice @Renée 🐝 Cormier, a lot can get lost or misinterpreted in an email (even tone). I have made it a habit not to respond to something that may be touchy via email anymore... actually quite some time ago because of the reasons stated above. "Don't speak in anger," and "Be open to resolution." So true, it makes life much easier when people can communicate without being on the defense.

    #2 Yes, I agree that face-to-face has its time and place (good rhyme, eh?). There has always been a bit of an art to managing those discussions. Our tech connected world may cause us to lose the skill. On the other hand, it may cause us to become a little more thick skinned. Maybe the day is coming when people won't be offended by negativity expressed through electronic communication.

    24/11/2017 #2 David B. Grinberg
    Great points here, Renee. Unfortunately, most young people today would rather use text than talk and communicate by Facebook over meeting face-to-face. While this might be helpful in some ways -- like communicating remotely -- it also has many negative side effects.
    For starters, it removes the human element of communications to a large extent. It dumbs down young people by ignoring people skills ("soft skills"). It's also easier to bully and harass someone online, rant and rave, or just have a stubbornly narrow-sighted view regarding public discourse. I think most folks should try to strike a reasonable balance between communicating online and off. This is not a so-called "zero sum game" and communicating online and off are not mutually exclusive.
    Thanks for more good blogging buzz!

    Thanks for sharing this interesting and topical piece of info @David B. Grinberg Elon Musk may well be a visionary innovator and successful businessman, but when it comes to the 'people' factor he is somewhat compromised (as evidenced by his own personal life). The current proposed undermining of the managerial level will surely negatively affect an atmosphere of inclusiveness and worse still, may well result in a negative backlash from management staff - going as far as sabotaging developments from which they have been excluded. The approach that we have taken using my corporate performance and leadership program (see https://www.neuronostic.com/PromoSurge.pdf ) is once there is buy-in at the highest levels, we create inclusiveness of work units which is facilitated by mentor-managers. In this way there is collective team accountability facilitated by managers who have everything to gain from the successful completion of projects that their teams have engaged. One only side-steps a non-co-operating manager, who if he/she doesn't up their came, is soon removed. My recent article https://www.bebee.com/producer/@ian-weinberg/an-authentic-lead addresses some of these basic principles.

    #1 @Devesh 🐝 Bhatt - most American companies, at least, do not have this type of "open door" policy for internal communications where you can bypass bureaucratic protocol and go straight to the C-Suite without permission of your manager/supervisor. "What makes this special" is that it may set a new standard of liberating employees to improve bottom-line productivity and lessening micromanagement by middle managers.

    Mark, I thoroughly concur with your observations, in particular not trying to change someone's values. My reason is different from yours but comes from the same observation. Values only change when a definitive emotional event occurs in a person's life and I do not believe I have the right to cause such a situation/reaction.

    "...what problem you are trying to solve” requires an understanding of the strategic priorities, the processes that underlie them, what is currently happening with those processes that shouldn’t be happening (defects), and what is going well that you don’t want to break (constraints)". This is very correct @Alan Culler. The problem is finding the problem and I agree with you completely.

    #1 I like Cialddini's book on Influence and while his observations about the human condition are spot on, knowing that this is about conditioned response makes it feels manipulative and it does not sit well with me to take advantage of that which the other person is unaware of.

    What I like about ethos, pathos and logos is that it is shaped by our own rhetoric and thus the other part of Aristotle I like, which is his focus on virtues - which itself is a basis for happiness as a tangible outcome.

    Whether we use tricks to gain influence or tricks to induce a state of happiness such as focusing on positive thinking, we then become just as conditioned as the people whose conditioning we happen to have received a map for. Cialdini provides that map but there is something about feeling like a trickster in following the directions of this map that I find tricky. Just as fake it till we make it is another kind of trick.

    Exploring these things ourselves and in return being in flow with this exploration, that is the kind of sweet-spot I like.
