If you’re a long time listener you know I am a geek for healthy and conscious communication strategies and today’s episodes is centered around just that.
Alexandra Jamieson is back on the show with her partner, Bob Gower sharing their “Getting To Hell Yes” conversation framework. Alex’s big truth was that she can’t do bullshit. Bob’s was that it’s better to have a boundary that’s too strong.
From there we got into all things that go into having high stakes conversations: how to express emotions responsibly without derailing conversations, how anger and rage can be productive or destructive, and what the responsibility is of people with boundaries when interacting with folks who clearly don’t have them. We also spent some time on power dynamics and Alex and Bob shared their four part conversation framework which includes intentions, concerns, boundaries and outcomes.
I loved this chat and will be re-listening a few times myself. I hope you get a lot out of it as well and share it up with those who could also use it!
