seeing others as objects
Seeing Others As Objects
  • Other people become invisible to us when we see them as objects instead of people.
  • Becoming aware of the needs and aspirations of the people around you will make you a far better communicator and person.
  • Understanding other’s needs and aspirations doesn’t require that you be negligent of your own needs.

  • See the customer as a person.
  • Remind the customer you are there to help them with their needs. In short APT.
drawing conclusions
Drawing Conclusions
  • Invisibility occurs when we do not have complete information and draw conclusions. We do not see things how they truly are when this occurs.
  • This type of invisibility can occur based on all of our senses: touch, sight, taste, smell, and hearing. It can also be caused by a combination of these elements.
  • It is important to make sure we are taking the time to evaluate if we have all the necessary information before making a decision on how to react to any given situation.
drawing conclusions4
Drawing Conclusions
  • Pick a time where your perception of events caused you to draw a false conclusion.
  • Share it with the group.
  • Group discussion: pick your favorite story to share.
invisibility during disputes
Invisibility During Disputes
  • People often involve themselves in a dispute by reacting with their defense mechanisms. When we react defensively disputes are nearly impossible to resolve.
  • When we have a defensive reaction the cause of the dispute becomes invisible and we function solely on emotions.
  • Functioning on emotion causes our reasoning ability to disappear.
ostrich syndrome
Ostrich Syndrome
  • When faced with conflict it is important to keep your head above sand. The problem will still be there when you surface, why wait?
  • Remember in a fight there is always a loser. You may win, but at what expense? Win / Win
  • This often occurs from fear or low self esteem. Remember to value yourself as a person.
invisibility during disputes1
Invisibility During Disputes
  • Don’t allow your reactions to be based on defense mechanisms.
  • If you do react in a way that you regret. It is not too late! Most of the time both parties are at a more reasonable level for resolution. Try again!
  • Remember to take the time to LISTEN and get all of the facts before drawing conclusions.
invisibility during disputes2
Invisibility During Disputes
  • Take a minute to write an example (that you don’t mind sharing) when you reacted based on defense mechanisms. What was the result?
  • Share the story with the group.
  • Group discussion: Pick one story. Decide on a better reaction to the scenario. Explain how it could have positively affected the results.

  • Don’t allow yourself to view others as objects
  • Get all the facts before forming conclusions
