I’m reading Kegan and Lafley at present, on language and its critical role in shaping our thinking and our social relations.

By asking readers to think through their work behaviour through a tight grammatical filter, they lead the reader to some incredibly profound self-discovery.

They then use the same language prism to improve the way we shape our social encounters.

I am normally dead cynical about this sort of stuff, which results in a mediocratic complacencies: “i respect your views, i value your contributions etc etc.”

K&L propose a much tighter way of framing social encounters which is much more individual; much more grounded in our personal worldview…
