Great analysis, Ali.

Could make its own case study.

OFF-TOPIC

That's exactly the problem with always choosing the high-power option: it's not always the most effective option for you. And, paradoxically for those who didn't grasp the basics, not the best way to actually get power/status/respect and everything that's relevant in socialization and life.

And that's why I put it in the opening lesson in PU: your goal is not to always be and behave as high power as possible.

That example you showed, and the issues with it, are a great example of when "high power" is not optimal behavior.
Imagine a junior customer representative entering the room and uttering those words to the more experienced team and his boss. Yikes.

Have you read the forum guidelines for effective communication already?

Agreed, I started a case study thread here.

BTW, I noticed that in the post I wrote "evening" instead of "meeting".

Lucio, can we make that small fix, please?

Thanks Ali I m using it the other way.  Adding those 'just' phrases to soften my delivery.  Tasking anyone in Australia is a minefield.

Todd Grande: Deepak Chopra's contribution to society is to expose how easy it is to manipulate people.
It's a wake-up call to society. Society needs to promote the development of critical thinking skills

Yep, couldn't agree more.

how easy it is to manipulate people.

An interesting book on that that I am currently reading is shadow man by Antonhy Napoleon.

A lot of interesting stuff, even if one does not agree with the main premises.

Recommend reading.

Cool channel:

  • Street epistemology

Interesting videos on how to change people's beliefs.
Or, maybe as he would put it "how to help people question their beliefs".

This channel is a goldmine!

The socratic method is certainly something I've heard about before, but I haven't seen this approach applied this effective and now totally see the power of it, especially as someone who hasn't much against a heated or even aggressive debate once in a while.
This method is certainly something to be aware of if you want to influence people in a positive way, and especially people you care about I think. Very interesting.

I haven't seen too much yet, but this 6 part series of theory and breakdown videos is quite insightful, as he analyzes and explains what he's doing and what he could have done better himself.
He is quite sophisticated in his approach, and there are a lot of themes from this site applied there as well, like the antifragile ego, power protecting others or a collarobative we-frame instead of me-vs-you, etc.

Thank you for this recommendation!
