Human Communication – The Strengths and The Blind Spots Or Why is the World Falling Apart?
I have the best job in the world.
I get to work with amazing people and explore all the areas you can imagine (and, no doubt, some that you can’t) of human communication. All of the techniques that enhance how we interact, build relationships and get things done are investigated in my talks and workshops.
This privileged position is enlightening and continues to teach me incredible lessons.
I get to experience and share the strongest and most fulfilling human communication strategies and also spend time with those who are suffering due to their own blind spots.
If you understand human communication, you would see the chaos caused by these blind spots from some distance away.
Chaos, such as the current UK Parliament meltdown, the collapse of high street mega brands and the disconnect between social media and the real world.
The world of communication echo chambers, post-truth and lack of cognitive diversity are both fascinating and incredibly frustrating and I am seeing the disastrous effects more and more.
Environments, such as the UK Parliament are a victim to all of the above but the real challenge, we all face, when the problem at hand is a complex one, is our lack of Cognitive Diversity.
If we can address this, rectify it and create a psychologically safe work environment then our world really would see no limits.
Take a look around your team, your office or your entire company. What do you see? Hopefully, you see plenty of lovely, intelligent and inspirational people.
How cognitively diverse are they? How do they think? Do they all look, act and think the same? If so, there is likely to be trouble ahead.
The complex problems that are waiting for us around the nearest corner require a collection of minds, attacking the difficulty (opportunity) from varied perspectives, alternative views and an assortment of opinions. This requires variety and a safe place to allow that variety to bloom.
More and more I meet organisations, Leaders and Managers who are struggling with communication. They are drowning in the noise and are overwhelmed. These same professionals are also underwhelmed (the evil twin of overwhelm) bombarded by communication that is far from impactful or meaningful.
The answers are staring us in the face, but most organisations are too blind or too cowardly to embrace the change that modern businesses desperately require.
For those serious about the future, turn off your email for a moment and search for Cognitive Diversity, Psychological Safety, and Crucial Conversations. Your future will depend upon it.
Nick Looby is a Modern Human Communication Specialist and would be delighted to speak at your conference and engage, entertain and enlighten your audience.
Hold tight – the future is going to be bumpy.
