When you have to think.
I listened to this while writing this post, try it while you read :o)
This is the tenth in a series of posts reflecting on our willingness to remember and the quality of that knowledge. These posts should be read in order of publication. Starting with number six, for example, would make no sense to the reader. Happy reading!
The infra-channel, the channel of reflection. Obviously, if we are aware of this channel and our interlocutor wishes to communicate with us through it, we can listen in and play along. On the other hand, if we don’t know about this channel and we use it with us, we could cry out for manipulation. If we know the channel exists and see that someone is trying to communicate with us through it, we could turn a deaf ear to it under the pretext that we were not born yesterday and that nothing will change our mind.
A particular channel, the opposite of the supra-channel with brutal impositions, the infra-channel is based on openness, trust and sharing a common goal. If we agree that our team wishes to achieve the same goal, it is possible that our respective worldview may blur signals and thoughts and prevent us from benefiting and sharing our ideas with our colleagues. My experience tells me that we are more often than not clumsy in aligning our visions and that this leads to a phenomenal amount of loss. The most commonly used solution to this problem? The supra-channel! Why seek consensus when you can order and force movement?
