What you will be able to:
Imagine Your Life Without Family, Friends, and Colleagues?
I have yet to speak to anyone who does not want to live a joyful, productive and fulfilled life but I have spoken to many who are struggling with communication in their relationships.
This is important because the quality of your life depends on the quality of your relationships,
and the quality of your relationships depend on your ability to communicate effectively.
Ever thought about why some past events suddenly pop into your mind?
Next time someone tells you a story pay attention to what happens inside your mind.
Did a story with a similar theme pop into your mind?
Did you the feelings you felt back then?
This story gives you an opportunity. Do you want to tell your story?
When you're in a group stay quiet and have a listen to what happens.
Someone else will tell a story with a similar theme to the one in your mind.
Notice how the story in your mind makes you feel.
Sad stories trigger feelings of sadness
Happy stories trigger happy feelings
Bad stories evoke bad emotions
The amygdala is your brains emotional control centre, and it's fast.
When someone tells you a story, your brain goes into action, and before you know it a similar story from your past has pops into your mind along with the emotion that went with it—sadness, frustration or joy.
That emotion comes from the amygdala, your reptilian brain or as we prefer to say your 'Gecko'.
The amygdala thinks in images. At the time of the event you experienced an emotion and that emotion was attached to that memory, that image.
You see a snake, and before your rational mind has registered the danger, you have already jumped over it.
Which brings us to the next point.
The Human Brain
The massive problem for interpersonal communication is the fantastic speed of the human brain.
If you want to get a person's attention, you must stimulate their subconscious brain—the Gecko.
If you fail to do that their brain recognises that this is of no interest to them.
If this happens you have to work very hard to recapture their attention.
To get their unconscious mind to take notice, you have to evoke an emotional response.
In business, even when you are face to face with the decision-maker, you need to engage their unconscious brain.
Are you 'really listening?
If 95% of our decisions are made by the unconscious brain, wouldn't it be good practice to target the unconscious?
But how do you do that?
Think about it. What happens when you are talking with another person?
Are you really listening or just waiting for your turn to speak?
Do you find yourself thinking about other things even when someone is still speaking to you?
And When someone has said something you strongly disagree with have you been aware of your feelings? Where does that emotion come from?
Did you really take the time to consider an response? Or was it just there?
Is it possible that you reacted not to what the person said but your feelings at the time?
