#BrainFactMonday โ€“ Why you need to communicate in a style that is fair.

Posted on 31st January 2024

Here's why, when you communicate, you need to ensure that both the tone of the conversation AND the content are perceived as FAIR by the counterpart (or the audience).

As you might well know by now (after more than a year's worth of #BrainFactMonday ๐Ÿง ) the human brain is wired to ๐—ฑ๐—ฒ๐˜๐—ฒ๐—ฐ๐˜ ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ฑ ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐˜€๐—ฝ๐—ผ๐—ป๐—ฑ ๐˜๐—ผ ๐—ฝ๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐—ฐ๐—ฒ๐—ถ๐˜ƒ๐—ฒ๐—ฑ ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ฎ๐˜๐˜€, and surely "injustice" feels threatening.

When a conversation lacks fairness, the interlocutor's brain may trigger emotional responses such as frustration, anger, or distrust, no matter how genuine your intentions are.

By perceiving what's being said as unfair (therefore a potential threat โ˜ ๏ธ), their emotional reaction will impair their ability to understand, learn and collaborate.

๐—™๐—ฎ๐—ถ๐—ฟ๐—ป๐—ฒ๐˜€๐˜€ ๐—ถ๐—ป ๐—ฐ๐—ผ๐—บ๐—บ๐˜‚๐—ป๐—ถ๐—ฐ๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ถ๐—ผ๐—ป (again, tone and content) promotes a positive emotional response that enhances the other person's ability to understand, learn, cooperate and respond.

You have many more chances to bring back home a good result when they are in that state. ๐Ÿ“ˆIncrease your chances by leveraging how the brain works and always ensure you communicate in fair terms and concepts.

If you don't know how to do so, just ask them. Don't shy away from questions such as "does this feel fair to you/what would make this feel fairer to you?" and so on.

After all, there's nothing that feels fairer than being involved in how the conversation is being handled!Does this resonate with you?
