Well, after a month of derision and denial, the masses are starting to realize that the coronavirus threat is real & needs to be taken seriously. So how can you inform your friends and family without triggering strong feelings of fear and anger? In this video, Chris walks through a key framework called ‘The Adjustment Reaction’, which should help your communications efforts greatly. It explains why different people react to the same threat differently, and how to find common ground so that both can move forward in partnership vs knocking heads.

He also highlights Peter Boghossian’s work in how to successful power through ‘impossible’ conversations — topics that are usually so emotionally-charged that we just tend to avoid them. For many households, facing up to the covid-19 threat can easily be such a topic. The key here is we are moving from the ‘preparation’ phase to the ‘managing the crisis’ phase. Anything and everything you can do to get those around you on the same page, so that you will be working together and not at odds, will be hugely helpful to your chances of making through the pandemic successfully.
