Eileen Mejia is back with us in two weeks to discuss more about how true collaboration takes place. It requires listening that is attentively oriented toward discovery rather than judgment. We have talked about the application of mindful listening in depth. Once people are released from social and self-judgment, they are able to access the depth of their intellectual and intuitive capacities, and act out of genuine collaboration and cooperation. Another description of this type of environment is a trust culture. In such a supportive environment, self-consciousness and pretense are replaced with a confident intellect that is grounded in authenticity. It is within a culture of trust that people can work from their strengths rather than defending their weaknesses...Competition and self-interest is replaced with cooperation and compassion. Join me in two weeks and discover how trust is usually the missing ingredient which causes communication barriers. Establish trust through trustworthy behavior and barriers to communicating evaporate.
