Did you know that the source of your stress can be related to your innate human wiring? As I mentioned last week, human wiring tells us how people are best engaged in decision making, why some people want lots of information to make an effective decision, and yet others want only the critical points of information.
Yet, most people make the mistake of delivering communication the way they want to receive it. This often leaves room for stressful miscommunication and misunderstandings.
I still remember the time I was sitting with two of my mentoring clients. One client was wired as a fast-paced External Thinker. The other client was wired as a methodical, Internal Thinker. When the client wired as an Internal Thinker asked for help to resolve a business issue, my External Thinker client rapidly asked her question after question. She didn’t get the first question answered before he asked another question.
The interaction reminded me of that 1986 movie, Short Circuit, when the robot was literally short circuiting from too much input. My client wired as an Internal Thinker couldn’t figure out which question to answer first. I intervened asking my fast-paced External Thinker client to slow down a minute. We all started laughing as they began to recognize their wiring in action.
It’s fascinating how much more effective you become when you learn about your own wiring (and learn to spot it in others). If you haven’t experienced our Wired to Win class, now is the time to register for our Wired to Win 101: How Are You Hardwired online class happening, Friday, February 5 from 8:30 am – 1 pm Eastern Time.
You will learn practical ways to spot how others need to receive their communication, identify ways to align your work environment with how you naturally execute, and get deeply connected to why experiences occur stressful to you (and what to do about it).
Better yet, bring your business colleagues, register your team, or your significant other. It’s fun when you have others in your business and life that can reinforce the distinction of human wiring.
