So many people agreed with this when we shared it on social media that we realized we had to share it with you, too.
In our book Radical Alignment we dedicated a good chunk of space to a few times you should never get into a heavy conversation.
We call them “conversation killers.”
We have a rule where either of us can pause a conversation if we realize either of us are:
- Or have had even one glass of Alcohol.
- (Think: HALT-A)
The simple rule is, if either of you are impaired by hunger (don’t take our work for it — check out this study), exhaustion, or even a glass of wine, everyone will do better to wait until after a snack, or even a day later to continue the conversation!
Get Radical Alignment for you and your family, or for your team, because … YES! We believe in following these guidelines for work meetings, too!
