MT: The Power of the Zip
Research has shown that when we are under stress, our heart health, as well as our overall health is being jeopardized. When we get angry, frustrated or agitated it raises the stress hormones in our bodies that send messages of fight or flight. Too many times we feel like we are being chased by a bear when in reality we are having a disagreement or unpleasant discussion that needs a good solution.
On this broadcast, our guest in the studio was Jill Kamp Melton, author of the book The Power of the Zip. Jill stressed that great conversations have the potential of decreasing stress and building relationships that last. She says in her book, ”The ways we use words help to determine whether or not we are heard, paid attention to, and ultimately have an impact.”
Jill says in her book The Power of the Zip is what happens when you speak with someone else and you keep quiet for as long as it takes for the other person to contribute. The Power of the Zip allows other people to discover themselves first and gives then permission to think in front of you and it does matter who speaks first. It creates a safe environment where people can share without penalty and people will trust you more in the process.
The book contains thirty- seven chapters of encouragement and wisdom on how to achieve great success in communicating.
On a personal note, I have especially been blessed with the chapter entitled The Power of the Pause. The Bible says to be quick to hear, and slow to speak … Just pausing before answering has made my life a lot less stressful.
Jill’s book, The Power of the Zip is available at Pop’s Culture Shoppe in Wellsboro.
