Day 5
[LI] Help People Have Lives

I need to call a quick pause here to deepen the learning with what I believe is a widely held developmental maxim:

People learn best when the content, context, conditions, code, culture, and core learning, adaptation and change is geared closely to where they are as they Acquire, Accumulate, Associate, Assimilate, and Adapt the help, advice, and guidance to their current frame of reference or worldview.

More importantly, if your helping functions are provided at more than a 1/3 to 1/2 level in any direction more distant from where the person being helped occupies in that moment (pCc performance gap), little if any of your help, advice, and guidance is valued and/or matters, as Argyris points out in his book Flawed Advice and the Management Trap (2000).

I’ll summarize:

In order to meet people where they are, you need means with which to identify their position and their pCc: potential, Capacity, capability as conditions permit or limit usually with respect to the current (time) frame.

We are playing in Rumi’s Field beyond right-doing and wrong-doing to help people have lives.

LEARNING TAKEAWAY: Help People Have Lives.

Continuing to surface energy and information in the moment is the idea behind “pCc Listening.”

It’s next.
