podposthead Descriptive Communication

An Alternative To Common Judgments

Season 1, Episode 17


M any family members presume they are accepted as long as their behaviors meet proper standards, as if an air of judgment hangs over them. By contrast, this recording will present a non-judgmental manner of communicating as lifestyle responsibilities are discussed. Drawing first from parenting techniques that de-emphasize grades while prioritizing descriptive communication, you will learn to be creatively expressive in your adult exchanges as well.

Listen to This Week’s Episode!


Something to Think about

In this episode, we (discovered, learned, recognized, identified, established, acknowledged, came to understand that:

  • Since earliest childhood we have been trained to label behaviors as good or bad.
  • Labelling inhibits individuals from exploring the real self.
  • Being descriptive allows communication to flow in a more authentic manner.


Let’s Talk

One of the most important aspects to positive change is communication and questions are the best way to gain deeper insights and develop more innovative solutions. So each week, I ask a question.

“How would your communication be transformed if you judged less and described more?”
