Hello to you listening in Milan, Italy!Coming to you from Whidbey Island, Washington this is Stories from Women Who Walk with 60 Seconds for Thoughts on Thursday and your host, Diane Wyzga.Here on Whidbey cleaning house gutters is a regular event. From up here on the roof of my house the whole neighborhood looks different. This bird's-eye view reveals what I can't see with my feet on the ground below.Up on the roof is a good way to escape from the everyday and pretend, much as you might have as a child climbing trees, finding a secret space, creating a fantasy world between you and the sky. I know I'm up here to clean the gutters but it's also where I get an insight into a difficult situation, an answer that's been eluding me, or even the Ah Ha! of a new idea.Practical Tip: You don't have to climb up on the roof to become inspired. Maybe there is a balcony, a hill, a tree you can perch in; or, close your eyes and imagine you are in a safe space between the ground and the sky inviting the perfect answer to your doubts. When we look up and out we see differently. This shift in perspective rewards our view with answers. Guaranteed!   You're invited: “Come for the stories - stay for the magic!” Speaking of magic, I hope you'll subscribe, share a nice shout out on your social media or podcast channel of choice, and join us next time!

Originally broadcast as The Adventures of Helen and Mary, radio's preeminent children's show first took to the air on September 7th, 1929 over CBS. It became Let's Pretend on March 24th, 1934. Hosted by “Uncle” Bill Adams, it was in many ways the brainchild of Nila Mack, who penned, produced, and directed each show. Ms Mack was born in 1891 in Kansas and became an ingenue on Broadway and in vaudeville. She arrived at CBS in 1928, and in August 1930 assumed control of the show. Mack felt the best way to tell a children's story was to let the children tell it. Acting talent could play a lead one week and a character part the next. She soon became CBS director of children's programming. One of Ms. Mack's staples was her open door policy. Any child could audition. She was responsible for developing two generations of some of the best child-turned-adult acting talent in radio history, like Arnold Stang. Radio Guide wrote that Ms Mack instantly knew if a child had it. If so, he or she would be given a small part and slowly work their way up to lead roles. Perhaps Newsweek said it best in 1943: “Let's Pretend is filled with kings and queens who ride talking horses through enchanted forests. It has maidens who must be rescued from witches, dragons, and dwarfs. Its characters travel in coaches, wear purple robes through emerald halls into jade rooms, and drink from golden goblets.” Cream of Wheat became the sponsor that year. It was a partnership that lasted until 1952. At 2PM on Saturday June 5th, 1954, Let's Pretend signed on the air over CBS in New York. Unfortunately, Nila Mack passed away from a heart attack on January 20th, 1953, but the show kept on. In its final two years the Nila Mack Award was given to the top players. The show would air until October 23rd, 1954. And thanks to Ms Mack, men and women like Arnold Stang were able to have long careers.

Old Testament: 2 Samuel 14–15 2 Samuel 14–15 (Listen) Absalom Returns to Jerusalem 14 Now Joab the son of Zeruiah knew that the king's heart went out to Absalom. 2 And Joab sent to Tekoa and brought from there a wise woman and said to her, “Pretend to be a mourner and put on mourning garments. Do not anoint yourself with oil, but behave like a woman who has been mourning many days for the dead. 3 Go to the king and speak thus to him.” So Joab put the words in her mouth. 4 When the woman of Tekoa came to the king, she fell on her face to the ground and paid homage and said, “Save me, O king.” 5 And the king said to her, “What is your trouble?” She answered, “Alas, I am a widow; my husband is dead. 6 And your servant had two sons, and they quarreled with one another in the field. There was no one to separate them, and one struck the other and killed him. 7 And now the whole clan has risen against your servant, and they say, ‘Give up the man who struck his brother, that we may put him to death for the life of his brother whom he killed.' And so they would destroy the heir also. Thus they would quench my coal that is left and leave to my husband neither name nor remnant on the face of the earth.” 8 Then the king said to the woman, “Go to your house, and I will give orders concerning you.” 9 And the woman of Tekoa said to the king, “On me be the guilt, my lord the king, and on my father's house; let the king and his throne be guiltless.” 10 The king said, “If anyone says anything to you, bring him to me, and he shall never touch you again.” 11 Then she said, “Please let the king invoke the LORD your God, that the avenger of blood kill no more, and my son be not destroyed.” He said, “As the LORD lives, not one hair of your son shall fall to the ground.” 12 Then the woman said, “Please let your servant speak a word to my lord the king.” He said, “Speak.” 13 And the woman said, “Why then have you planned such a thing against the people of God? For in giving this decision the king convicts himself, inasmuch as the king does not bring his banished one home again. 14 We must all die; we are like water spilled on the ground, which cannot be gathered up again. But God will not take away life, and he devises means so that the banished one will not remain an outcast. 15 Now I have come to say this to my lord the king because the people have made me afraid, and your servant thought, ‘I will speak to the king; it may be that the king will perform the request of his servant. 16 For the king will hear and deliver his servant from the hand of the man who would destroy me and my son together from the heritage of God.' 17 And your servant thought, ‘The word of my lord the king will set me at rest,' for my lord the king is like the angel of God to discern good and evil. The LORD your God be with you!” 18 Then the king answered the woman, “Do not hide from me anything I ask you.” And the woman said, “Let my lord the king speak.” 19 The king said, “Is the hand of Joab with you in all this?” The woman answered and said, “As surely as you live, my lord the king, one cannot turn to the right hand or to the left from anything that my lord the king has said. It was your servant Joab who commanded me; it was he who put all these words in the mouth of your servant. 20 In order to change the course of things your servant Joab did this. But my lord has wisdom like the wisdom of the angel of God to know all things that are on the earth.” 21 Then the king said to Joab, “Behold now, I grant this; go, bring back the young man Absalom.” 22 And Joab fell on his face to the ground and paid homage and blessed the king. And Joab said, “Today your servant knows that I have found favor in your sight, my lord the king, in that the king has granted the request of his servant.” 23 So Joab arose and went to Geshur and brought Absalom to Jerusalem. 24 And the king said, “Let him dwell apart in his own house; he is not to come into my presence.” So Absalom lived apart in his own house and did not come into the king's presence. 25 Now in all Israel there was no one so much to be praised for his handsome appearance as Absalom. From the sole of his foot to the crown of his head there was no blemish in him. 26 And when he cut the hair of his head (for at the end of every year he used to cut it; when it was heavy on him, he cut it), he weighed the hair of his head, two hundred shekels1 by the king's weight. 27 There were born to Absalom three sons, and one daughter whose name was Tamar. She was a beautiful woman. 28 So Absalom lived two full years in Jerusalem, without coming into the king's presence. 29 Then Absalom sent for Joab, to send him to the king, but Joab would not come to him. And he sent a second time, but Joab would not come. 30 Then he said to his servants, “See, Joab's field is next to mine, and he has barley there; go and set it on fire.” So Absalom's servants set the field on fire.2 31 Then Joab arose and went to Absalom at his house and said to him, “Why have your servants set my field on fire?” 32 Absalom answered Joab, “Behold, I sent word to you, ‘Come here, that I may send you to the king, to ask, “Why have I come from Geshur? It would be better for me to be there still.” Now therefore let me go into the presence of the king, and if there is guilt in me, let him put me to death.'” 33 Then Joab went to the king and told him, and he summoned Absalom. So he came to the king and bowed himself on his face to the ground before the king, and the king kissed Absalom. Absalom's Conspiracy 15 After this Absalom got himself a chariot and horses, and fifty men to run before him. 2 And Absalom used to rise early and stand beside the way of the gate. And when any man had a dispute to come before the king for judgment, Absalom would call to him and say, “From what city are you?” And when he said, “Your servant is of such and such a tribe in Israel,” 3 Absalom would say to him, “See, your claims are good and right, but there is no man designated by the king to hear you.” 4 Then Absalom would say, “Oh that I were judge in the land! Then every man with a dispute or cause might come to me, and I would give him justice.” 5 And whenever a man came near to pay homage to him, he would put out his hand and take hold of him and kiss him. 6 Thus Absalom did to all of Israel who came to the king for judgment. So Absalom stole the hearts of the men of Israel. 7 And at the end of four3 years Absalom said to the king, “Please let me go and pay my vow, which I have vowed to the LORD, in Hebron. 8 For your servant vowed a vow while I lived at Geshur in Aram, saying, ‘If the LORD will indeed bring me back to Jerusalem, then I will offer worship to4 the LORD.'” 9 The king said to him, “Go in peace.” So he arose and went to Hebron. 10 But Absalom sent secret messengers throughout all the tribes of Israel, saying, “As soon as you hear the sound of the trumpet, then say, ‘Absalom is king at Hebron!'” 11 With Absalom went two hundred men from Jerusalem who were invited guests, and they went in their innocence and knew nothing. 12 And while Absalom was offering the sacrifices, he sent for5 Ahithophel the Gilonite, David's counselor, from his city Giloh. And the conspiracy grew strong, and the people with Absalom kept increasing. David Flees Jerusalem 13 And a messenger came to David, saying, “The hearts of the men of Israel have gone after Absalom.” 14 Then David said to all his servants who were with him at Jerusalem, “Arise, and let us flee, or else there will be no escape for us from Absalom. Go quickly, lest he overtake us quickly and bring down ruin on us and strike the city with the edge of the sword.” 15 And the king's servants said to the king, “Behold, your servants are ready to do whatever my lord the king decides.” 16 So the king went out, and all his household after him. And the king left ten concubines to keep the house. 17 And the king went out, and all the people after him. And they halted at the last house. 18 And all his servants passed by him, and all the Cherethites, and all the Pelethites, and all the six hundred Gittites who had followed him from Gath, passed on before the king. 19 Then the king said to Ittai the Gittite, “Why do you also go with us? Go back and stay with the king, for you are a foreigner and also an exile from your home. 20 You came only yesterday, and shall I today make you wander about with us, since I go I know not where? Go back and take your brothers with you, and may the LORD show6 steadfast love and faithfulness to you.” 21 But Ittai answered the king, “As the LORD lives, and as my lord the king lives, wherever my lord the king shall be, whether for death or for life, there also will your servant be.” 22 And David said to Ittai, “Go then, pass on.” So Ittai the Gittite passed on with all his men and all the little ones who were with him. 23 And all the land wept aloud as all the people passed by, and the king crossed the brook Kidron, and all the people passed on toward the wilderness. 24 And Abiathar came up, and behold, Zadok came also with all the Levites, bearing the ark of the covenant of God. And they set down the ark of God until the people had all passed out of the city. 25 Then the king said to Zadok, “Carry the ark of God back into the city. If I find favor in the eyes of the LORD, he will bring me back and let me see both it and his dwelling place. 26 But if he says, ‘I have no pleasure in you,' behold, here I am, let him do to me what seems good to him.” 27 The king also said to Zadok the priest, “Are you not a seer? Go back7 to the city in peace, with your two sons, Ahimaaz your son, and Jonathan the son of Abiathar. 28 See, I will wait at the fords of the wilderness until word comes from you to inform me.” 29 So Zadok and Abiathar carried the ark of God back to Jerusalem, and they remained there. 30 But David went up the ascent of the Mount of Olives, weeping as he went, barefoot and with his head covered. And all the people who were with him covered their heads, and they went up, weeping as they went. 31 And it was told David, “Ahithophel is among the conspirators with Absalom.” And David said, “O LORD, please turn the counsel of Ahithophel into foolishness.” 32 While David was coming to the summit, where God was worshiped, behold, Hushai the Archite came to meet him with his coat torn and dirt on his head. 33 David said to him, “If you go on with me, you will be a burden to me. 34 But if you return to the city and say to Absalom, ‘I will be your servant, O king; as I have been your father's servant in time past, so now I will be your servant,' then you will defeat for me the counsel of Ahithophel. 35 Are not Zadok and Abiathar the priests with you there? So whatever you hear from the king's house, tell it to Zadok and Abiathar the priests. 36 Behold, their two sons are with them there, Ahimaaz, Zadok's son, and Jonathan, Abiathar's son, and by them you shall send to me everything you hear.” 37 So Hushai, David's friend, came into the city, just as Absalom was entering Jerusalem.

(ESV) New Testament: 1 Thessalonians 1–2 1 Thessalonians 1–2 (Listen) Greeting 1 Paul, Silvanus, and Timothy, To the church of the Thessalonians in God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ: Grace to you and peace. The Thessalonians' Faith and Example 2 We give thanks to God always for all of you, constantly1 mentioning you in our prayers, 3 remembering before our God and Father your work of faith and labor of love and steadfastness of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ. 4 For we know, brothers2 loved by God, that he has chosen you, 5 because our gospel came to you not only in word, but also in power and in the Holy Spirit and with full conviction. You know what kind of men we proved to be among you for your sake. 6 And you became imitators of us and of the Lord, for you received the word in much affliction, with the joy of the Holy Spirit, 7 so that you became an example to all the believers in Macedonia and in Achaia. 8 For not only has the word of the Lord sounded forth from you in Macedonia and Achaia, but your faith in God has gone forth everywhere, so that we need not say anything. 9 For they themselves report concerning us the kind of reception we had among you, and how you turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God, 10 and to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, Jesus who delivers us from the wrath to come. Paul's Ministry to the Thessalonians 2 For you yourselves know, brothers,3 that our coming to you was not in vain. 2 But though we had already suffered and been shamefully treated at Philippi, as you know, we had boldness in our God to declare to you the gospel of God in the midst of much conflict. 3 For our appeal does not spring from error or impurity or any attempt to deceive, 4 but just as we have been approved by God to be entrusted with the gospel, so we speak, not to please man, but to please God who tests our hearts. 5 For we never came with words of flattery,4 as you know, nor with a pretext for greed—God is witness. 6 Nor did we seek glory from people, whether from you or from others, though we could have made demands as apostles of Christ. 7 But we were gentle5 among you, like a nursing mother taking care of her own children. 8 So, being affectionately desirous of you, we were ready to share with you not only the gospel of God but also our own selves, because you had become very dear to us. 9 For you remember, brothers, our labor and toil: we worked night and day, that we might not be a burden to any of you, while we proclaimed to you the gospel of God. 10 You are witnesses, and God also, how holy and righteous and blameless was our conduct toward you believers. 11 For you know how, like a father with his children, 12 we exhorted each one of you and encouraged you and charged you to walk in a manner worthy of God, who calls you into his own kingdom and glory. 13 And we also thank God constantly6 for this, that when you received the word of God, which you heard from us, you accepted it not as the word of men7 but as what it really is, the word of God, which is at work in you believers. 14 For you, brothers, became imitators of the churches of God in Christ Jesus that are in Judea. For you suffered the same things from your own countrymen as they did from the Jews,8 15 who killed both the Lord Jesus and the prophets, and drove us out, and displease God and oppose all mankind 16 by hindering us from speaking to the Gentiles that they might be saved—so as always to fill up the measure of their sins. But wrath has come upon them at last!9 Paul's Longing to See Them Again 17 But since we were torn away from you, brothers, for a short time, in person not in heart, we endeavored the more eagerly and with great desire to see you face to face, 18 because we wanted to come to you—I, Paul, again and again—but Satan hindered us. 19 For what is our hope or joy or crown of boasting before our Lord Jesus at his coming? Is it not you? 20 For you are our glory and joy. Footnotes [1] 1:2 Or without ceasing [2] 1:4 Or brothers and sisters.

Old Testament: 2 Samuel 14–15 2 Samuel 14–15 (Listen) Absalom Returns to Jerusalem 14 Now Joab the son of Zeruiah knew that the king's heart went out to Absalom. 2 And Joab sent to Tekoa and brought from there a wise woman and said to her, “Pretend to be a mourner and put on mourning garments. Do not anoint yourself with oil, but behave like a woman who has been mourning many days for the dead. 3 Go to the king and speak thus to him.” So Joab put the words in her mouth. 4 When the woman of Tekoa came to the king, she fell on her face to the ground and paid homage and said, “Save me, O king.” 5 And the king said to her, “What is your trouble?” She answered, “Alas, I am a widow; my husband is dead. 6 And your servant had two sons, and they quarreled with one another in the field. There was no one to separate them, and one struck the other and killed him. 7 And now the whole clan has risen against your servant, and they say, ‘Give up the man who struck his brother, that we may put him to death for the life of his brother whom he killed.' And so they would destroy the heir also. Thus they would quench my coal that is left and leave to my husband neither name nor remnant on the face of the earth.” 8 Then the king said to the woman, “Go to your house, and I will give orders concerning you.” 9 And the woman of Tekoa said to the king, “On me be the guilt, my lord the king, and on my father's house; let the king and his throne be guiltless.” 10 The king said, “If anyone says anything to you, bring him to me, and he shall never touch you again.” 11 Then she said, “Please let the king invoke the LORD your God, that the avenger of blood kill no more, and my son be not destroyed.” He said, “As the LORD lives, not one hair of your son shall fall to the ground.” 12 Then the woman said, “Please let your servant speak a word to my lord the king.” He said, “Speak.” 13 And the woman said, “Why then have you planned such a thing against the people of God? For in giving this decision the king convicts himself, inasmuch as the king does not bring his banished one home again. 14 We must all die; we are like water spilled on the ground, which cannot be gathered up again. But God will not take away life, and he devises means so that the banished one will not remain an outcast. 15 Now I have come to say this to my lord the king because the people have made me afraid, and your servant thought, ‘I will speak to the king; it may be that the king will perform the request of his servant. 16 For the king will hear and deliver his servant from the hand of the man who would destroy me and my son together from the heritage of God.' 17 And your servant thought, ‘The word of my lord the king will set me at rest,' for my lord the king is like the angel of God to discern good and evil. The LORD your God be with you!” 18 Then the king answered the woman, “Do not hide from me anything I ask you.” And the woman said, “Let my lord the king speak.” 19 The king said, “Is the hand of Joab with you in all this?” The woman answered and said, “As surely as you live, my lord the king, one cannot turn to the right hand or to the left from anything that my lord the king has said. It was your servant Joab who commanded me; it was he who put all these words in the mouth of your servant. 20 In order to change the course of things your servant Joab did this. But my lord has wisdom like the wisdom of the angel of God to know all things that are on the earth.” 21 Then the king said to Joab, “Behold now, I grant this; go, bring back the young man Absalom.” 22 And Joab fell on his face to the ground and paid homage and blessed the king. And Joab said, “Today your servant knows that I have found favor in your sight, my lord the king, in that the king has granted the request of his servant.” 23 So Joab arose and went to Geshur and brought Absalom to Jerusalem. 24 And the king said, “Let him dwell apart in his own house; he is not to come into my presence.” So Absalom lived apart in his own house and did not come into the king's presence. 25 Now in all Israel there was no one so much to be praised for his handsome appearance as Absalom. From the sole of his foot to the crown of his head there was no blemish in him. 26 And when he cut the hair of his head (for at the end of every year he used to cut it; when it was heavy on him, he cut it), he weighed the hair of his head, two hundred shekels1 by the king's weight. 27 There were born to Absalom three sons, and one daughter whose name was Tamar. She was a beautiful woman. 28 So Absalom lived two full years in Jerusalem, without coming into the king's presence. 29 Then Absalom sent for Joab, to send him to the king, but Joab would not come to him. And he sent a second time, but Joab would not come. 30 Then he said to his servants, “See, Joab's field is next to mine, and he has barley there; go and set it on fire.” So Absalom's servants set the field on fire.2 31 Then Joab arose and went to Absalom at his house and said to him, “Why have your servants set my field on fire?” 32 Absalom answered Joab, “Behold, I sent word to you, ‘Come here, that I may send you to the king, to ask, “Why have I come from Geshur? It would be better for me to be there still.” Now therefore let me go into the presence of the king, and if there is guilt in me, let him put me to death.'” 33 Then Joab went to the king and told him, and he summoned Absalom. So he came to the king and bowed himself on his face to the ground before the king, and the king kissed Absalom. Absalom's Conspiracy 15 After this Absalom got himself a chariot and horses, and fifty men to run before him. 2 And Absalom used to rise early and stand beside the way of the gate. And when any man had a dispute to come before the king for judgment, Absalom would call to him and say, “From what city are you?” And when he said, “Your servant is of such and such a tribe in Israel,” 3 Absalom would say to him, “See, your claims are good and right, but there is no man designated by the king to hear you.” 4 Then Absalom would say, “Oh that I were judge in the land! Then every man with a dispute or cause might come to me, and I would give him justice.” 5 And whenever a man came near to pay homage to him, he would put out his hand and take hold of him and kiss him. 6 Thus Absalom did to all of Israel who came to the king for judgment. So Absalom stole the hearts of the men of Israel. 7 And at the end of four3 years Absalom said to the king, “Please let me go and pay my vow, which I have vowed to the LORD, in Hebron. 8 For your servant vowed a vow while I lived at Geshur in Aram, saying, ‘If the LORD will indeed bring me back to Jerusalem, then I will offer worship to4 the LORD.'” 9 The king said to him, “Go in peace.” So he arose and went to Hebron. 10 But Absalom sent secret messengers throughout all the tribes of Israel, saying, “As soon as you hear the sound of the trumpet, then say, ‘Absalom is king at Hebron!'” 11 With Absalom went two hundred men from Jerusalem who were invited guests, and they went in their innocence and knew nothing. 12 And while Absalom was offering the sacrifices, he sent for5 Ahithophel the Gilonite, David's counselor, from his city Giloh. And the conspiracy grew strong, and the people with Absalom kept increasing. David Flees Jerusalem 13 And a messenger came to David, saying, “The hearts of the men of Israel have gone after Absalom.” 14 Then David said to all his servants who were with him at Jerusalem, “Arise, and let us flee, or else there will be no escape for us from Absalom. Go quickly, lest he overtake us quickly and bring down ruin on us and strike the city with the edge of the sword.” 15 And the king's servants said to the king, “Behold, your servants are ready to do whatever my lord the king decides.” 16 So the king went out, and all his household after him. And the king left ten concubines to keep the house. 17 And the king went out, and all the people after him. And they halted at the last house. 18 And all his servants passed by him, and all the Cherethites, and all the Pelethites, and all the six hundred Gittites who had followed him from Gath, passed on before the king. 19 Then the king said to Ittai the Gittite, “Why do you also go with us? Go back and stay with the king, for you are a foreigner and also an exile from your home. 20 You came only yesterday, and shall I today make you wander about with us, since I go I know not where? Go back and take your brothers with you, and may the LORD show6 steadfast love and faithfulness to you.” 21 But Ittai answered the king, “As the LORD lives, and as my lord the king lives, wherever my lord the king shall be, whether for death or for life, there also will your servant be.” 22 And David said to Ittai, “Go then, pass on.” So Ittai the Gittite passed on with all his men and all the little ones who were with him. 23 And all the land wept aloud as all the people passed by, and the king crossed the brook Kidron, and all the people passed on toward the wilderness. 24 And Abiathar came up, and behold, Zadok came also with all the Levites, bearing the ark of the covenant of God. And they set down the ark of God until the people had all passed out of the city. 25 Then the king said to Zadok, “Carry the ark of God back into the city. If I find favor in the eyes of the LORD, he will bring me back and let me see both it and his dwelling place. 26 But if he says, ‘I have no pleasure in you,' behold, here I am, let him do to me what seems good to him.” 27 The king also said to Zadok the priest, “Are you not a seer? Go back7 to the city in peace, with your two sons, Ahimaaz your son, and Jonathan the son of Abiathar. 28 See, I will wait at the fords of the wilderness until word comes from you to inform me.” 29 So Zadok and Abiathar carried the ark of God back to Jerusalem, and they remained there. 30 But David went up the ascent of the Mount of Olives, weeping as he went, barefoot and with his head covered. And all the people who were with him covered their heads, and they went up, weeping as they went. 31 And it was told David, “Ahithophel is among the conspirators with Absalom.” And David said, “O LORD, please turn the counsel of Ahithophel into foolishness.” 32 While David was coming to the summit, where God was worshiped, behold, Hushai the Archite came to meet him with his coat torn and dirt on his head. 33 David said to him, “If you go on with me, you will be a burden to me. 34 But if you return to the city and say to Absalom, ‘I will be your servant, O king; as I have been your father's servant in time past, so now I will be your servant,' then you will defeat for me the counsel of Ahithophel. 35 Are not Zadok and Abiathar the priests with you there? So whatever you hear from the king's house, tell it to Zadok and Abiathar the priests. 36 Behold, their two sons are with them there, Ahimaaz, Zadok's son, and Jonathan, Abiathar's son, and by them you shall send to me everything you hear.” 37 So Hushai, David's friend, came into the city, just as Absalom was entering Jerusalem.

And they accompanied him to the ship. Paul Goes to Jerusalem 21 And when we had parted from them and set sail, we came by a straight course to Cos, and the next day to Rhodes, and from there to Patara.5 2 And having found a ship crossing to Phoenicia, we went aboard and set sail. 3 When we had come in sight of Cyprus, leaving it on the left we sailed to Syria and landed at Tyre, for there the ship was to unload its cargo. 4 And having sought out the disciples, we stayed there for seven days. And through the Spirit they were telling Paul not to go on to Jerusalem. 5 When our days there were ended, we departed and went on our journey, and they all, with wives and children, accompanied us until we were outside the city. And kneeling down on the beach, we prayed 6 and said farewell to one another. Then we went on board the ship, and they returned home. 7 When we had finished the voyage from Tyre, we arrived at Ptolemais, and we greeted the brothers6 and stayed with them for one day. 8 On the next day we departed and came to Caesarea, and we entered the house of Philip the evangelist, who was one of the seven, and stayed with him. 9 He had four unmarried daughters, who prophesied. 10 While we were staying for many days, a prophet named Agabus came down from Judea. 11 And coming to us, he took Paul's belt and bound his own feet and hands and said, “Thus says the Holy Spirit, ‘This is how the Jews7 at Jerusalem will bind the man who owns this belt and deliver him into the hands of the Gentiles.'” 12 When we heard this, we and the people there urged him not to go up to Jerusalem. 13 Then Paul answered, “What are you doing, weeping and breaking my heart? For I am ready not only to be imprisoned but even to die in Jerusalem for the name of the Lord Jesus.” 14 And since he would not be persuaded, we ceased and said, “Let the will of the Lord be done.” 15 After these days we got ready and went up to Jerusalem. 16 And some of the disciples from Caesarea went with us, bringing us to the house of Mnason of Cyprus, an early disciple, with whom we should lodge.

This is the last of seven principles in week number one of our Daily Leadership Tip Series. This whole week, we have covered six ways to build trust and build a team environment. The last leadership tip this week is number seven, Practice Good Listening Skills.Don't look for techniques on how to listen better.  The people who are great listeners do so because they want to be great listeners, not because they learned the latest “technique” to trick people into thinking that they are listening when they aren't. I've noticed that there are about four different levels of listening.   THE FOUR LEVELS OF LISTENINGThe lowest level of listening is to completely Ignore the speaker.  We all fall into this trap from time to time, such as when we are in a boring meeting and our mind wanders.   The second level of listening is when we Pretend to listen, but we are really just looking for an opportunity to end the conversation or change the subject.  The third level of listening is when we Selectively listen (mainly out of self-interest.) When we listen at this level, we will practically ignore the other person unless they are talking about something that directly concerns us.  Selective listeners will sometimes listen just enough to form an opinion or a rebuttal.  They tend to interrupt a lot and give advice.  When we move into this level of listening, a lot of times, we do so to speed up the listening process. But for the most part, this type of listening can slow down the communication process giving us a negative result.  The highest level of listener is the Attentive or Focused listener.  This person ignores all distractions and focuses totally on the speaker.  In any given conversation, we will typically slip from one of these types of listening levels to another.  The key is to get our minds off ourselves and onto the other person.  If we are genuinely interested in the other person – if we really care about the other person – we will automatically spend more time in the focused listening level.  Week #1: Build Trust and Rapport QuicklyPrinciple #7: Be a Good Listener.https://www.leadersinstitute.com/daily-leadership-tip-7-practice-good-listening-skills/

Learn how to become the person you really want to be I met Linda Vettrus-Nichols through her lovely husband Terry Earthwind Nichols, with whom I've done two podcasts. Here is our most recent one. Linda brings you a different perspective on how you can take control of your life and become the person you have always wanted to be. She talks about her own journey and how she got to where she is now, as a coach, as a person really into thought leadership, and as someone who inspires people to do what they might otherwise not have done (like write a book in 30 days). Linda's a really special person to hear from. Listen in! Watch and listen to our conversation here It's not so bad to really love others, and love yourself a little too Linda is the CEO of Evolutionary Healer, a global transformational performance improvement company which she co-founded with her husband Terry. She calls herself “the queen of clarity” and believes that at the end of the day, love and solid relationships are all that matter. As a spiritual thought leader and coach, she finds the gaps and corrals the chaos that keep powerful entrepreneurs stuck or stalled. In some ways, we do similar things. We both would like to help you see, feel and think in new ways. Linda is also the author of 21 books, one of which focuses on the practical action steps you need to publish your own book in a month or less. You can connect with her on LinkedIn, her personal website and the Evolutionary Healer website. Need a little help becoming who you really want to be? Here's a start Blog: 5 Ways You Can Find Happiness And Joy In These Turbulent Times Blog: Is It Time To Rethink Where You Are And Where You Are Going? Podcast: Women, Are You Ready To Find Your Happiness? Is It All Around You? Additional resources for you My award-winning second book: Rethink: Smashing The Myths of Women in Business My award-winning first book: On the Brink: A Fresh Lens to Take Your Business to New Heights Simon Associates Management Consultants    Read the transcript of our podcast here Andi Simon: Welcome to On the Brink with Andi Simon. Hi, I'm Andi Simon. And as you know, I'm your host and your guide. And people come from all across the globe to listen to us because we help them get off the brink, which is so much fun. You don't want to get stuck or stalled. And that's really very interesting because sometimes when we see things, we run the other way. We don't really go forward towards them. You need a little nudge, or a little hope, or some trust. So I go looking for interesting people who are trying to help you see things through that fresh lens. You begin to trust the fact that you can in fact change. I know your brain hates to change. But don't waste this crisis that we've gone through. It's time to rethink everything that you used to think was exactly the way we did it and now there are all kinds of new ways. You're not quite sure how we're going to go back because you're not going back. Now the question is, how do you go forward? And where is that? And how do you see what's new and uncertain when you all want certainty? And there is none. So today, I have Linda Vettrus-Nichols. And Linda came to me through Terry, who is her husband and her partner in a wonderful firm. Let me tell you a little bit about her. Then she'll tell you about how she got here because it's been a wonderful journey for her. She does some great things with people as a coach, as somebody who is really into their thought leadership. Somebody who helps you write books in 30 days. So Linda is the CEO of Evolutionary Healer, a global transformational performance improvement company. I'll say that, again. They are global. And it's a transformational performance improvement company that she co-founded with her husband, Embassy Ambassador Terry Earthwind Nichols. I've done two podcasts with Terry. And I've done two for him. Linda is “the queen of clarity.” And I love that title. She believes that fantasizing about the impossible is totally reasonable and striving for satisfaction is a must. And at the end of the day, love and solid relationships are all that matters. You know, we've learned a whole lot during this pandemic. And that is, you do only live once and it's not so bad to really love and love yourself a little too. She's a spiritual thought leader and coach who finds the gaps and corrals the chaos that keep powerful entrepreneurs stuck or stalled. So in some ways, we do similar things. And we'd like to help you see, feel and think in new ways. She's a published author of 21 books, and she has a book with the practical action steps you need to get your book done. And I have two books done. We're working on the third. It is a journey. Thank you for joining us today. Linda Vettrus-Nichols: Thank you. And oh, Andi, I just absolutely love your book Rethink: Smashing The Myths of Women in Business.  Andi Simon: I truly appreciate that. I'd love for you to share with the audience who is Linda? And what is your journey? Give them a sense of your story because I do think it's a wonderful rich one, and one that helps others begin to see their own selves in journey form. What's your journey? What's your story? Linda Vettrus-Nichols: My story is, I was in a marriage for 33 years. I call it a starter marriage and was just trying to keep my sanity and trying to figure it out and figure out what wasn't working and why. And at the end of the day, I found out it takes two people. And I didn't know, I just felt stuck. And now I teach that people aren't stuck. Not really, they just feel stuck. And for me what got me unstuck was to surround myself with a whole different group of people. And within that group, there was somebody who helped me with questions, kind of clarity questions on taking a look at leaving a marriage of that many years and coming up with answers to that question. So that was one sort of pivot for my life. And, then I met Terry and he had figured out a process to take people through. Much like Sigmund Freud, he was looking for interior discoveries, like breakthroughs to find that amnesia in memory from childhood. And so we worked on that together. We were in a coaching industry with that and going out speaking and things like that. And then Terry had heart surgery. And my coach was like, What do you want to do now, because he's out of commission for a while, and I had no idea what I really wanted to do. And so I guess that's probably how I started stepping into clarity and helping other people with their clarity. Andi Simon: So there was a catalytic moment where you were on your own for a moment, not alone. But on your own and as you discover that part of you was an emerging lesson in the next stage in your own journey, which was really quite interesting. So as you began to frame that, what was the problem you wanted to help other people solve or to solve for yourself? Because there's a combination. It's really a collaboration, not simply, I do this, you do that? It sounds like you are going through your transformation, and could help others do as well? How did you develop it? Is there a particular process you can share?  Linda Vettrus-Nichols: Well, I love people's stories, like you. And I was just talking to someone networking, and said, Oh, I love your story. I'd love to record it. And maybe use it in a summit or something. And she was like, Oh, yeah, either way, that's fine. So I did that. And then there were two more women that came along. So I recorded and then I started thinking, what are these women really saying to me, and they were telling me about a time that they were stuck in their lives. And I thought, I could do a summit on being stuck. And so I interviewed 14 women, ages 16 to 74. The 16-year-old was actually one of our clients who had been suffering from PTSD, post traumatic stress disorder, for about two months. So we were able to bring out her story that fit what we're doing in our business, and bring out what these other women were doing in their businesses. And then I just kind of kept rolling and kept interviewing people. I had so many interviews. I'm like, Wow, I could just have a summit a month, for eight months. Which I did. Then I asked 16 of the probably 60-some women I'd interviewed if they wanted to be in a compilation book. And so I got the transcriptions back, and they were in script format, like a play at school, and I thought, Oh, that's different. And I was going to put them into a sort of written form. And then it was like, they have a beautiful flow this way. I really hate to take away that beautiful flow. And so I told Terry, I'm just gonna leave them in script format. And I go, Who does that? And he goes, Nobody. There were two authors apiece from those 16 and we made up eight little books of their stories and named them after the different summits. So one is called Stuck. One is called Paradigm Shifters. It was more social media and that way. I ended up publishing nine books. So I kind of cheated. And so people aren't used to 21 books. How did you do that? My kids were really challenging. And so I hooked up with another person whose kid was super challenging. And we started helping parents. We were pulling kids out of biochemical autism, ADD, ADHD and learning disabilities. Now we're teaching parents, mostly moms, how to do that. And I was before you could like Google stuff, you know. So that was really a special time, way back when, that was my first book in 1998. And then, I suppose it was about 2016 when I started cranking out books. I started with nine.  Andi Simon: You know, the audience who's watching us today is scratching their heads and saying, How'd she do that? You know,  you can inspire people. You can push them. They'll run the other way and say, I can't do that. But in fact, part of this requires trust and courage, a bit of bravery. But part of it just requires a mindset that says, Of course we can, let's see how, and having a husband who's supportive is not inconsequential. But you also had a real good understanding of what was needed. Whether it was for those mothers, or for the others, and you sort of felt that they had an unmet need. You are really a Blue Ocean thinker.  Instead of putting the transcripts into a format of a font, there's something about your approach that's really fascinating to me. You see what is needed, and then you come up with an idea to really solve it. I have a hunch that that's been sort of the last period of time, since you left your last marriage into this one. What is so important now for you is the freedom to do this, the autonomy, the mastery, your purpose. Give the listeners some sense of how you've come to terms with who you are at this stage? And where is it going, because they want to have a role model. Because they all have great ideas, sometimes they're sitting there, and as you know, they don't blossom, and we want to help them be free. How about your thoughts? Linda Vettrus-Nichols: The transition of marriage was, even if you're in a really healthy relationship, and you're not just loved, you really feel loved and supported. It's not enough until you love yourself. And so that was one of the big shifts for me, is learning to love myself. The other thing is stepping into, for lack of better words, my zone of genius. What is it that I do that I am so good at, and I am not exhausted doing it. I could just do it 24/7, and not even burn out. So I have actually stepped into that in the whole book in 30 days process. And that I do free sessions. They're usually more like a clarity session, and whether someone thinks there's a book inside of them or not. And it's very powerful. The number one thing is, I get women out of their heads. I get them to slow down, to focus, to really embody. And that's my little process. So we just do like three belly breaths, like close your eyes. It's funny because when you do that, and you get your hand on your abdomen, all of sudden, you just really calm, you slow. And it makes people feel sane. And it's just been a really special process. It's just a free thing that I do for people, whether I'm networking with them, or they're a potential client or whatever. So that's, that's huge. And then I say, if it's a clarity thing, that's just like, okay, so if you can only do one, which one would it be? If it's more of, they haven't come to me with something specific, it's like, Okay, if there's only one thing you can let the rest of us know, like, you're poof, off the planet tomorrow, and you really, really want us to know it. It's not about yourself. Not about you, it's you wanting us to know what for us. What would that be, and then they give it to me. And then I get another one and another one. And I get three and then I go back to the first of the three and do it again three times. And I end up with nine things in a special order. And I always say, it came from their soul, you know. And that ends up being their book chapters and their message to the world in a specific order of importance to them. And it's easy for them to find their tribe, so to speak. Andi Simon: Well, but you know, easy is an interesting word always. People hate to change, the pain in the brain is real. Cortisol gets up there, your amygdala fights it. The second thing is that the amygdala doesn't like the unfamiliar. And it really wants things that are comfortable. Even if they're not answered. Your mind does exactly what it thinks you want it to do. And whether it's putting the hand on the belly or doing some mindfulness or a little meditation, you quiet down and you just take your brain into a quiet mind state where it feels really safe. Yesterday is gone, not much you can do about it and tomorrow hasn't happened. So for the present, you have this wonderful gift of just being, and then your process shows them what is possible. And the trust that comes from that is extremely powerful because they really don't know where they're going, do they. And that uncertainty makes people very uncomfortable. And slowly, the three turns into nine. And next thing, you know, it's time for us to write a book about us and a bit about what we want the world to know so it can be a better place. So as our audience is listening, think about yourself: what kinds of ideas do you have that you want, in some fashion, to turn into a legacy of some type? Do you find that people write more than one book, as you have? Linda Vettrus-Nichols: Well, my clients sure do. I really believe that everybody's full of all kinds of books. And like you, your clients, you won't even take them unless they're at "enough is enough." And so they just almost come to me pregnant with a book. It's like, I gotta get this thing out of me. I have no idea how to do it. Or I'm afraid to do it. I'm afraid if I tell whatever they're going to tell, somebody else will hate them for it or be mad. And yeah, there's a lot of drama trauma stories with my clients. What's even weirder is, I have clients who have done cookbooks with their drama trauma story. They're really powerful, cool books. But it's like, who does that?  Andi Simon: I'm working on my third book. And the gal I'm working with said, We really want to do a cookbook like this. I said, I like that idea. And I'm not sure what. God is in the kitchen, all's well in the world? But there's something about that cookbook model that pours out a whole different side of us, particularly as a woman, although the great chefs are all guys. There's a female side in there that's very nourishing, in many ways, and close to some interesting opportunities. Now, you're a person who doesn't stand still. What do you see coming next? Because I always say we never waste a crisis. Linda Vettrus-Nichols: I love that line of years. That's so cool. You've stepped into making a course. And I can't wait to take your course. It just totally fills the gap in my learning, if you will. So I've created three Thinkific courses. And then I started experimenting with clients and doing courses. Actually, a client came to me, she had already started one. And we took her book and put it into one and then I did mine. So that's been interesting. And what I've found is, even though we're using the material from the book, the course becomes its own thing. It becomes almost a whole new teaching. And if you haven't read the book, you're going to be okay and get through the course. If you have read the book, it reinforces the books. Another thing I enjoy doing is analyzing someone's website. That's what I absolutely love to do. Andi Simon: And it's interesting because we're in the process of redesigning our website, and I'm impressed with our guys, because they've been working with us for a long time. I've been doing this for 20 years. So we've had multiple websites and iterations. But, you know, it's an interesting time, to your point, because as we started to look at what we had been, and were no longer who we were, and I was aware we were going either/and it was all captured in a website of all things. And then I renovated my office two weeks ago, three weeks ago, and had to repaint it. But in the process, I took a lot of books that had been here for 20 years, taking down the bookshelves was a fascinating capture of life. Because the books that were important, aren't necessarily the ones that I want to hold onto. And I'm not quite sure what I'll be doing with future books and so many of them are on my iPad. But they are an interesting commentary on being an anthropologist. It's all a digital indication of the things that matter. And you almost want to make a record of who and why you were and what's coming in the way in which you're reading and the ideas. Warren Buffett said, Spend five hours a day reading. I'm not sure I can do that. But I try to read two books a week. And I love to read, I'm not a Netflix person, but I am a reader. And I find the ideas change your mind. You know, your mind rises, as you add new ideas into it, particularly on how to write a book, and how you convey the story. And it's a very interesting way of learning about things. But we're both changing. And as we look forward, people say to me, Well, I want to go back to the way it was. I say, It's never going to go back to the way it was. So it's time to create the future you like to have. They have so little in common with the folks who come to you to write their book. They're not quite sure of the future they want to have. But I tell them, Unless you visualize where you're going, you can't live today. You know, we're futurists. And so do you help folks in your coaching? I'm curious what you're seeing among your coaching clients and others about what they see coming? Can they visualize something new? As I'm coaching my clients, or doing my workshops for CEOs, they're stuck, many of them, and many of them are guys. And they knew how to run what they had. And they have no idea how to run what is now. And they're smart people, entrepreneurial, and frustrated, and they can't relate. And so I almost want to put their hands on their belly and say, take a deep breath or start again, you're in the startup phase. Linda Vettrus-Nichols: That's such a great point. And you probably know that my husband created the vision strategy roadmap. And so I use that with my clients as well. And it isn't sort of, just like magic, one time, let go of everything. And you know, it kind of comes up from the soul. It embodies all right there from your abdomen, your powers, and just let it come up. And what are you doing? Like, where are you and it's really interesting. If they tell me they want to speak from a stage, I just go into this intense drill down with them. Because that can mean so many things. And I really want them to get to who they really are. So if you were out in the center of the football stadium with people behind you, not a wall, would you be comfortable with that? And some people will write, Yeah, and other people, No, I wouldn't. If I go to the movie theater, I'd love to be in the back with the wall behind me. I like lots of neurological things. My background is special education. And I love all the brain stuff.  Andi Simon: Just to share some of our observations: I push them being who I am, as an anthropologist, I push them out to go exploring. I don't have a clue how to redesign your business without going out and listening. You don't have to do much more than listen to customers, are those whom you'd like them to be? And my workshops start off with, Who's going to be your customer tomorrow? What do they need? How are you going to be serving them? I did a podcast earlier about the customer experience now that has changed. Everyone wants things fast. And the customer service centers are having a difficult time. They're all 30%, short on staff. And they are trying to figure out how to adapt to a remote workforce. How to evaluate them, everything that was, isn't. But the new one isn't yet either. And so part of it is, How do I visualize what could be taken out a year or two, and then sort of backward plan to begin to set up a path to get there because in the absence, we don't know how to live today. And all the hormone perspective stuff that Martin Seligman has shown us from psychology, your human brain wants to see the future. And that's how it is now and if you don't see it, you make it up. So it's an interesting time for helping people see the opportunities of what comes, as opposed to flee them or fear them. And your amygdala would love to hijack them. So it's pretty cool stuff. And as you're working with these entrepreneurs who want to be on the stage, you might set up a stage and let them learn. It's just being up there and talking to people. Linda Vettrus-Nichols: Another big question I say is, Do you like having the lights in your face?  They may not know and have to go try it. Some of them just immediately go, No. So you want to see your audience? Well, yeah, I'm like, Okay, well, that just totally changes your venue. That totally changes the amount of people who are going to attend. Sometimes they can't quite come up with them themselves. So I start giving them some of those more concrete things. Andi Simon: They need you to ask those profound questions. So it's pretty cool. So I'm looking at our time, it's about time for us to wrap up. I like to ask my interviewees two or three things you don't want the listeners to forget. Are there some things you want to tell them because they remember the end better than our beginning. What do you want them to walk away with? And say, Oh, Linda really helped me with this. Thoughts? Linda Vettrus-Nichols: Just the idea that no one's ever really stuck. And words are just stories we tell ourselves. I know, you and I both like that. And, know who you are. So get in touch. Write your own story.  Andi Simon: Let's emphasize the stories a little bit. What we've learned is that maybe 45,000 or 50,000 years ago, or at some point, we had a quantum leap in our brain. And humans, because of that, are storymakers. We give meaning to things. And so a thing isn't a thing, it has some purpose or meaning, or it has some value. And out of that came the stories. The secret of our success is about how the stories in our culture have been the secret of our human success. And it changes our minds as we evolve. And it keeps this coevolution here, it's both the external and the internal transformation that's going on. And you are evolving, as Linda has and I have. We aren't the same folks. We started out as not that different from them, either. But there's been a transformation. And Linda works with people to help them see, feel and think in new ways, as I do. Because if you don't see it and feel it, you don't know what it is that we're talking about. And she's talking about people wanting to be on stage who don't realize they are gonna be lights in their eyes. We've got a little bit of good testing. Pretend you're in high school, and you're going to get on stage and see what it feels like because we decide with the heart and the eyes up ahead. And that follows. There's stories coming out of the pandemic, really big stories, and I'm anxious to see how we can compile them. As I'm listening to you, maybe there's a book here, about the post pandemic reality and how do we share it? Linda Vettrus-Nichols: Yeah, that'd be cool. And the idea of healthy detachment really comes from staying out of the story. So there's the flip there, too. We get so caught up in the story, and it's just a story. It's a story of time. So you had all this pain, flip the story. And that's what happened to me. I had a gymnastics accident, lost my balance, fell, and really jammed my shoulder and nobody could understand it. I went to an ortho biochemist, and she said, Tell me how that happened. Tell me the story about it. So I told her, and then she said, Now change the story. Flip the story. And I'm like, as if it didn't happen, you know, because I had the gymnastic accident and lost my dance career. A few months later, I lost my father to suicide. So there was a lot of trauma locked up in that shoulder. So I flipped the story. Terry was standing behind me, and all of a sudden, my shoulder blade just went clump. Literally, a sound of clunk. And he just went right in there. And took care of business, like no way to get under there before, but don't lose the power. Andi Simon: I don't mean to interrupt you because it's so exciting to talk to you. But we live the story in our minds. They aren't there, they're an illusion. They're not real. Linda Vettrus-Nichols: But they're also in our bodies, right? That's the thing. And when we change the story, it's just a story. When we change the story, the body doesn't know the difference. The body goes, Oh, okay. Is that the story? Great story. Oh, okay. Andi Simon: And I think this is just a great story to share with our audience about how to change because we don't want you on the brink anymore. We want you to soar. And I don't want you to jump out of an airplane without a parachute either. Nor do I want you to fly the airplane, you know, and build it at the same time. There's lots you can do here. And I love Linda's process for helping you express this. Turn it into a book and make it a reality, at least an illusion that turns into something. So it's great fun. Thanks for joining me today. This has been cool, thank you. It's fun. People always ask, Who's your audience. So I say to all of you out there who come, I've truly appreciate you. As you're thinking about yourself, send me your ideas at info@andisimon.com. I have people across the globe who send me their little notes, their ideas about who they'd like to hear from. It's great fun to share them. And it's a great time for you to rethink who you are, where you're going, and how you're going to get there. Sometimes you need a hand. And that's what we both do. Both Linda and myself have a great time helping you rethink your story. And when you begin to work through my program, Rethink Your Journey with Andi Simon, or hers, you begin to see that it's all in that story. And if you like the story, great, but if you don't, we can change it. I love Linda's story. She changed her story and her new shoulder didn't hurt. How does that happen? My books are available on Amazon: On the Brink: A Fresh Lens to Take Your Business to New Heights and Rethink: Smashing The Myths of Women in Business. We are delighted you come to enjoy, and share, and have a great day. Stay well. Thanks, Linda, thank you so much for coming today. And we'll say goodbye. Bye now.

THE Leadership Japan Series by Dale Carnegie Training Tokyo,  Japan

Our image of leaders is often of someone giving orders or pontificating about what is supposed to happen.  Our leader monologue is always one way traffic and we may be laying down golden advice in English or our imperfect Japanese, but is it being received, understood, digested, accepted or employed?  In this modern, stressful, super busy life, we give the team a rapid burst from our content firehose and then we move on, because there is a lot for us to do.  Subsequently, we discover what we wanted wasn't done at all or was done incorrectly or was taken off on a tangent we never imagined possible.    This is more common than it should be and we must be cautious when we are engaging in linear communication with our teams.  The content is often published rules and regulations, policies and procedural guidelines.  We may have developed Standard Operation Procedures which outline how things are supposed to be done.  We send out our memos, emails, text messages using various broadcast media. The good thing is it is written down,  so for Japanese team members, it is easier to absorb than rapid fire conversation. These are some typical ways we launch our missives into the void and we are never sure if people actually read, noted or understood what we were saying.   We are the boss right, so they have to take careful note of what we say, especially when we take the time to get key messages in front of everyone.  We are busy people, so this type of activity by its nature will be reserved for the most important content.  Therefore, everyone should know that communication hierarchy and treat these contributions carefully and thoughtfully.  Except they don't always do that, do they.  Why?   Like their bosses, they are drowning in information, are subject to a constant bombardment of emails, messages on Teams or Slack, etc., updates on social media or from any of the other burdensome abominable conduits piling on the workload and filling up every minute of the day.  And it was in English.   So yes, we have to be articulate, concise and clear in our communication but we also have to use questions to clarify understanding and operate at the highest levels of listening capability.  Asking clarifying questions is relatively easy, but are we actually good listeners?  We assume we are, simply because we are too busy to pay any attention to how we listen. Let's explore the five levels of listening and see how we stack up.   Ignore. We might be thinking, “I never ignore the team member when they are speaking”.   Is that true though?  The person may say something which triggers a strong thought in our mind. We are now completely diverted from what they are saying, to what we are thinking.  In effect, we are no longer paying any attention to them, because we are consumed by our own thoughts.  Effectively, we are ignoring them.   Pretend. In this case, we are polite, considerate and very boss like.  We are nodding our head and looking like we are concentrating, but we may not be fully taking in what we are being told.  Again, our mind may be busily crafting what we are going to say in our clever response to their points.  Or we may have been given an indication from the team member about something that interests them and we are getting ready to give them the benefit of our genius ideas and brilliant experiences.  If we hear something that sounds like resistance to our idea, that gets an instant counter response.  We are now mentally consumed with getting our evidence ready, so that we can go into an argument with them.  We want to sort them out, get them to fly right and get them to agree with our “correct” opinion.   Selective. Bosses have a highly tuned ability to hear agreement with their opinion and may miss key information.  Our listening skills are directed only to hear a “yes” or a “no” response regarding our ideas and nothing else from subordinates.   There may be key information attached to that “yes” or “no”, but we are certainly not listening for that.  We are filtering what we hear, according to our interests and preferences.  Effectively, we are only partially listening to the person.  We are standing right there in front of them, but they do not have our full focus.  My wife assures me I am doing this at home too and she is probably right, so more work to be done here.   Attentive. In this case we are giving the team member our full attention.  We are not filtering for signs of agreement or resistance.  We are not cutting them off, finishing their sentences or redirecting them mid-sentence. We are patiently and politely waiting for them to finish what they want to say.  We then paraphrase back to them what we heard. We are not shortchanging them, thinking what we are going to say, because we are fully absorbed by what they are saying.   Empathetic. This is the highest form of listening, where we are listening with our eyes as well as our ears.  We are reading what is going on behind the words.  We are conscious of what is not being said and we are listening to the tone of how we are being told the information.  We are trying to meet the person “in the conversation going on in their mind”.   Churchillian long bursts of our brilliance may make us feel good, I certainly enjoy giving them, but as leaders we should be aiming for more interactive communication with our team.  We need to have them respond to what we have said to ensure we are on the same wavelength and that we have actually heard each other correctly.  If we discover there is a gap in understanding, then that reflection allows us to correct it on the spot.  “I never said that”, “That isn't what I meant”, “No, it is the other way around”, are all exchanges we want to avoid having to engage in.  When we are each speaking in another language, the opportunities for misunderstanding are rife.  Both sides never have enough vocabulary to completely frame entire thoughts and communicate the subtleties of the language in its original form.  English is very confronting and direct and Japanese is often vague and circuitous. Checking for understanding becomes obligatory.   However, even the act of checking is no guarantee.  If I don't completely understand what I am being told in Japanese, I may be smiling, nodding and looking like I get it, because it is tiresome and embarrassing to admit my linguistic skills are not perfect.  My Japanese team members do the same when we operate in English, so the linguistic bear traps are many.  We need to have our team members feed back to us what we think they understand, to see if it is a match.  Empathetic listening and habituated checking for understanding have to become our firm habits in Japan.

Episode 212 - The Prodigal Son as Shadow, Ego & the Self

This Jungian Life

Jung interpreted religious traditions from the viewpoint of their psychological significance. The allegorical tale of the Prodigal Son illustrates Jung's basic understanding of the structure and development of the psyche. The young prodigal epitomizes shadow qualities of ignorance, arrogance and impetuousness. His dissolute indulgences show lack of ego strength and land him in a pigsty. Repentant, he returns to his father's estate, hoping for servant work. Instead, his father celebrates his homecoming. The older brother is aghast at this joyful reception; he has been dutiful yet never so acclaimed. He is the embodiment of respectable persona and adaptation—yet his ego-oriented sense of self seems to have a less enlivened connection with the father. The father, symbolizing the transcendent Self, provides redemptive eros and safe haven. Each of us has a shadow, an ego that tends to believe it's our totality, and a transpersonal center that can welcome us home.    Dream I am on the second platform of a four-tiered structure leading from a dock on the river to the top of a cliff. There are ladders and obstacles connecting each of the platforms. I am looking down at the water which is raging and ebbing with monstrous waves. The water is a beautiful color of indigo blue, vastly wide, and immensely deep. There are boats being tossed in the waves with the owners tethered to them by rope, desperately attempting to climb aboard but ultimately becoming swallowed by the crashing waves. I notice a small park ranger dinghy boat come out from a crack in the cliff face and set into the raging water in an apparent attempt to save the other boaters. The driver of the boat appears timid and frightened. I shout to a man next to me, "I used to have that job!" The boat is immediately capsized.  I begin climbing up to the third platform and become paralyzed with fear as I climb the wooden pegs jutting out of the side of the cliff. I am aware that a slip would result in certain death. I realize that I have done this many times before and struggle before ultimately pulling myself up and over. A young Afghan boy comes after me effortlessly scaling this obstacle and the next, reaching the top of the cliff. I realize that I was holding up a line of people!  I think of the capsized park ranger and determine that I must go save him. I look into the water from on high and see his body; curled in the fetal position; bobbing in the water. I am transported down and reach my hand in to gather him and perform CPR. I am confused to find that all I pull out of the water is a long-expired cartridge from a firework or rifle. I begin the climb up to the second tier and at the threshold there is a tangled web of rope that ensnares me. I am panicking when I hear little voices from below: "Wear it like a dress!" I ponder this for a second and then slip through the rope web as if putting a dress on, and am securely on the second platform. I look below and see a dozen young girls; aged about five years old; all wearing matching black and white dresses. I realize that I must help them up and demonstrate the climbing technique: “Pretend you are a pirate!" I shout to them and demonstrate in an animated way the  technique. They begin to climb and I reach down; gathering them two at a time and pulling them to the second platform.   References   Holy Bible: New Revised Standard Version, Luke 15:11-32.
