LEVELS OF COMMUNICATION AND CONNECTION

THE PYRAMID AND TIMING OF COMMUNICATION

LOWEST LEVEL.  Talking about someone but not TO someone.  Gossip, rumors, assumptions.  Response Time:  Can’t respond, it didn’t happen.

LEVEL 2.  Text.  Short.  Abbreviated.  Emotionless.  Full of holes.  Response Time: 2 hours or less.

LEVEL 3.  E-mail longer.  Nicer.  A bit more formal… Short.  Abbreviated.  Emotionless. Response Time: end of the business day.

LEVEL 4.  Phone call.  You can hear and feel the emotions.  You can chat, connect small talk.  But you can’t see a person’s reactions.  Response Time: voicemail.. end of the business day.

LEVEL 5.  Hangout/Zoom  97% there!  You can see reaction, you can guage it all.  This is how humans were MADE to interact.  It’s how we do things!   Response Time:  Be early, stay late.  Be present!

LEVEL 6.  Nothing replaces a hug or handshake and face to face time.  Response Time: Put your damn phone away.

LEVEL 7.  Break bread.  Nothing like taking the time to eat with a person.

LEVEL 8.  Do what they love to do.  See someone doing what they love to do is … priceless…

 

IF YOU ARE STRESSED I BET YOU ARE LIVING IN A LEVEL 1, 2, OR 3 WORLD!
