Storytelling battles and healing a divided America

The stories told in this US election were at a fever pitch and we all found ourselves in a battle -- not just disagreement. No matter what you political views are, this TED talk clear explains how ALL individuals can move forward. 

 

This is a profound lesson in leadership storytelling and influence.

 

Here's what I know -- being stuck in being "right", being stuck in your position, won't do a darn thing for you or anyone else except make you more right and everyone else wrong. That's where we get to feel superior, judgemental, prideful, and arrogant. It's the breeding ground of hatred and racism.

 

The personal consequences are steep: power struggles, fighting, pain, distance, and anger/hatred in relationships. Add to that feeling personally deadened, tense, unhappy, imprisoned, used, frustrated, angry, hopeless, or victimized.

 

Yes, stand up for what you believe -- but don't let yourself be a brick wall.

 

We have other choices as Jonathan Haidt lays out. There is "right" on both sides. What I particularly love is Haidt explaining the human psychological and cultural movements that brought us to today. And what to do about it. 

 

You may not be ready today to watch this -- so save it for tomorrow. But do watch it.

 

Think about how you personally want to be these next 4 years. Choose wisely.
