Miscommunication Can Be Fun If You Stay Open

Today let’s look at what happens when someone asks you to do something, and your response doesn’t match what they had in mind? 

Miscommunication – familiar in employer-employee, partner-partner, parent-child exchanges – shows up hilariously in the Tik Tok video below:

When our response doesn’t completely delight them, how do we respond? 

Oops, can we stay flexible and open?

Relaxing, letting go, and even having a freshly-squeezed-orange juice-laugh puts everything back in perspective. We enter a friendly space where we trust our connection to the person. Together we can sort everything out.

Laughing with you,
