This week I attended a communication’s workshop on messaging. I learned about how our language activates frames in our brains. I gained an appreciation for the differences between the ‘Strict Father” and “Nurturing Family” worldviews. It was fascinating!
Instead of talking about politics this holiday season, I’m going to ask people “What are you doing for others this holiday season?”. Then, I’ll share my adopt-a-family story. I learned that this value-based language activates ‘care brainwaves’.
Hopefully, we’ll all be nicer to each other by focusing on values instead of sides.
