It's not all talk
Your organisation is captured in the conversations that take place every day. The quality and strength of your relationships, dynamics and culture are revealed by what is said, what cannot be said, tone, share of voice, language used and the direction of traffic.
Becoming who you want to be starts with saying what needs to be said. Things change when you can articulate an ideal future state. Commitment is gained when you can explain the problem you need help to solve. Goals are achieved when you can express the process to get from here to there. Trust is built through meaningful dialogue. Respect comes from the consistency between your words and your actions.
What we are talking about right now: poetry
Why are some physicians including poetry as part of their treatment of patients?
Because they know people need to participate in their own healing. Intimidating medical terminology and clinical diagnoses can actually get in the way of the relationship between doctors and patients.
fMRI scans show poetry has an immediate impact on the brain. It helps communication by bringing people onto the same page’, and makes the real world feel more manageable and meaningful.
Even listening to poetry improves flexible thinking, integrates multiple thoughts and addresses the novel and unpredictable.
