I told a loved one
I was going to visit a friend.
She thought I had said
I was going to visit her
and she bubbled over with excitement.

That miscommunication
told me what she secretly wanted
- a visit from me.

A salesman buddy
organized a meeting
with some of his up and coming clients.
He thought these clients
would benefit from attending the same meeting,
could learn from folks
in similar positions.

One of the clients
interpreted the group meeting
as a signal
their company wasn’t important enough
to warrant a solo meeting.

My salesman buddy
realized this client wanted more attention
from him.
He has arranged more solo meetings
and the client seems happy.

We never WANT miscommunication
but often miscommunication
reveals what the other party
is truly thinking or feeling.

Listen to that miscommunication.
