It is good that we are discussing how to reduce the Intention – Impact Gap. The author very well described the impact of the gap that’s created on individuals, seldom. In this blog, I want to emphasize upon the way of communication described by the author. I agree with her point of view about how to reduce this gap. But I believe this is possible with positive feedback rather than giving negative feedback. Both ways described here has individual impacts and equal importance. Both are correlated. Let me start with communicating your intention. We all can agree that belief is a strong word. Positive believe can drive person and make the person do what they are believing. A large number of examples are available such as physically challenged people, who have achieved success with a positive belief in themselves. Every human has own unique sense of understanding. If we want to make a positive impact on our intention, first we have to make them believe in us. By communicating our intention of how we want to help, we are gaining their trust. If a person really convinces with the same way we describe, He or she will come on board else communication can be triggered to identify the root cause. Many time people don’t get the idea and show resistance or unwillingness to discuss. In addition to this, we have to keep in mind that human can take small steps easily and grow rather taking big leaps. This depends on how we are communicating our intention. We may choose to divide person improvement target with a number of intermediate small targets. Once she achieved small one or two milestones, you can simply say to her that you achieved this level now, next target to achieve improve at this level”. Here we are making her believing in our story first with showing a success. This will also help us building confidence in her and ultimate she will try to be in see as per our point of view. After the success, we gave positive feedback rather than using harsh language. Ask your feedback is another important way to help us to reduce intention- impact gap. We observe this in our everyday life. In most of the corporate success stories, we find many such examples. How involvement and feedback exercise helps the organization. The same applies to personal life as well. I am trying to emphasize on author’s view with positive feedback lens. This requires to communicate our intention rightly. Also, this makes us nurture our own create brand image of own to create impact. This helps to reduce targeted intention- impact gap.
