Starting the Conversation:

How does what you will not compromise impact what you prioritize?

Host: Jess Dewell

What You Will Hear:

What will you NOT compromise influences your decisions.

What you think you value could be different than what you actually value.

When we think we compromise, yet we really aren’t.

Look at small details and reflect and ask: am I prioritizing what I value?

Bring what you value to every conversation.

The work we do creates a feedback loop.

Question and consider how your action today will position you for tomorrow.

Example:  A 4-executive team all working their best, yet limited by how they are not working together.

Live Audience Question #VBBRadio: Not making compromises is good in theory, but in practice we all hidden hypocrites. We are ready to make compromises when the going gets tough.

Even seemingly small or insignificant actions create big outcomes.

Example: Family business and family dynamic.

Creative win-wins, new opportunities, even effective problem solving comes from thinking about the win-win.

Audience Question from radio [at] reddirection.com: It make sense that we prioritize what we value, but what do we do when we have a crisis and our priorities dictate our values?

Choose how you show up, emotions and experiences do not have to run the conversation.

Benign neglect is compromising what you value.

Take the time to think.

Live Audience Question #VBBRadio: I’m intrigued by the feedback loop concept. What if instead of constrictive feedback we get harsh criticism.

The situation we’ve created from our actions.

It is BOLD to know what you will not compromise.
