There’s been a big training program at work about communication from The Brief Lab.
They started by developing training programs for US Special Forces. The Special Forces are selected from all branches of the military. The best of the best. But they still have issues with communication.
We’ve got training and incentives. A book. I read it during vacation.
Totally hooked me. The gist: Say what you mean, ask for what you need, right up front. Don’t waste time.
But now, it is causing problems. I learned.
It affected my attitude. Now I can’t tolerate beating around the bush. Or internal meetings that are nothing more than navel gazing.
I came back from vacation a brand new man. I’m probably so fired, already, I just don’t know it.
Like Kurtz said: “seeing clearly what there is to be done and doing it directly, quickly, awake, looking at it.”
