Comm Series #7: More On Candor

23 Feb

In the video Susy Welch says we are trained to be nice and this is the reason for our lack of candor. Another explanation is that candor often elicits a negative emotional response, this leads to avoidance.

How do we become sensitive and effective users of candor?  Practice is the key element. Effective performance results from careful preparation, lots of trials, feedback and refinement of our practice.  In human performance, we do our best when we work inside our style.
