Angry, fearful, traumatized and even over exuberant people all have one thing in common. They only see what is directly in front of them. Figuratively speaking, they are walking as if they are wearing blinders, like a horse does when pulling a carriage.
If you are attempting to help a person in distress who is unaware of you because you are standing on their blindside, then you are essentially wasting your breath and most likely…a whole lot of words.
Why? People have a blindside when chaos is present in the form of anger, fear, trauma and slap happy drunkenness. Each of these emotions can consume our clarity.
In this episode I unveil how to make sure you are talking to the person and not their blindside.
Below are 4-opening for the blindside, but if you listen to the podcast you will get a whole lot more info on each technique.
1. Position yourself diagonally off to the side of the person, when speaking.
Avoid talking to them like a Drill Sergeant would on the side and into the person’s ear.
They won’t see you.
2. Use your hands to create movement and direct the person towards your voice.
Make sure to use both hands.
3. Nod your head in the direction that you want the person to move.
4. Use Civility. Like Excuse me, Thank you for listening and Walk with me. Please. I have a dedicated podcast to this topic here. Ep:027-PT10-Story-Civilty Works
