The ‘New’ Conversations With Kai Mann Show


Join us on August 2nd at 7pm EST for the “New” Conversations With Kai Mann show. The second season is going to be totally different from the first season. It will have a more intimate look, feel and vibe. We’ll be speaking with more amazingly phenomenal people of this human diaspora, as well as people from all over the world. We’ve created a new studio to give us a more consistent look but also this season we have added a visual podcast to the show. Stop by every Wednesday at 7pm EST starting, August 2nd and we’ll have a new guest either on the couch or by podcast. We look forward to having you!

Talk Tuesday ~ Do Better


I had a conversation like I haven’t had in a long time. If you knew me, you’d know that I love to listen to good conversation. I wonder for a moment where that person went, it’s been so long. I used to be a good listener and last night reminded me just how much I do love it. Listening to hear the experiences of others; pieces of their journeys shared from their lips to my ears. I always get something, mostly confirmation.

I woke up this morning after listening to the most wonderful and poignant, and sincerely relevant to this current time, conversation. A conversation so real that you couldn’t help but listen. We talked about a myriad of things but what was interesting to me was to hear how deficient some of us are. Not just that, but how there are those of us who aren’t deficient in that particular area have decided to keep going. Sometimes wanting to stop to pick a few people up but the higher you go you aren’t warranted to do so. My question was “why” why are we so deficient in our thinking and ultimate doing. Why are we prone to not seek, no, require of ourselves to do more. To do better. Although I ponder that question it was stated that people don’t know. They just say and do some of the darnedest things at the darnedest times because they don’t know any better. I chuckled in amazement as in disbelief but with careful thought you realize how sad it is that we don’t know when to say and do things in its most opportune times.

The time in which we were speaking of was during interviews. Not sure how we got on the subject but we began to talk about the things people say in interviews. So candid at times it’s almost personal. Like people don’t know where to draw the line. I wondered “Don’t they have to take a personal development class in school? Don’t they have to do mock interviews anymore?”  (My mind going through a series of questions?) People can’t keep just going on like this. We know that we have to do something. We don’t always know what to do but we have to do more than just not do anything. We must learn to be more strategic in what we do and say, and when to do and say it. I don’t know any other way around that.

Just as quick as I had thought about the past I began to wonder why or when did we lose the ability to do so? Then my partner questioned our friends in asking “why not still hire the person because you could see how their street skills could benefit the office?” we were speaking of a young lady who we could tell was smart but she just wasn’t office ready from her tone to her gestures. Just then our dear friends both pointed out that we don’t always have time to stop and pick others up. At some point they have to do it themselves because the train is leaving the station and we don’t know how late they will be getting to the destination. Basically, she expects if she is hiring someone for a specific position that they come ready to fulfill all of the attributes of that position. She cannot sabotage the team for one.

Let me know what you think. Leave a comment below.

 

Conversations


Conversations

It don’t matter

Just enjoy yourself

I don’t know about anybody else

But I know

I know what I think

Me and God are alright

Don’t nobody know me

like him

No one else has really

seen me

closer

Each day I just

Just choose to ascend

Just a little bit higher

Each and Every day

I don’t want to be

Be bogged down

down with negative conversation

unproductive words

product of

uncaring spirits

Spirits that want to

be distracted

Distracted by

“Any” thing

I don’t want to do that

I hate it when

when someone tries

to do that

Ugh! that just hurts me

I smile and don’t say nothing

And then I think

“Dang”

I don’t want to start

start conversations

about people who

aren’t in the room

Like we not expecting

Expecting them

To walk in

And be

be able to keep talking

That’s so disappointing

let’s not do that

It’s not like

you nor I

aren’t able to

talk about

something else

It’s almost like

some people

they do it

just to see

see if you gonna

say something

You know that

when you open your mouth

they’re going to

run and talk

So you know that keeping

your conversation

only about

you and them

because

you’re

the only two people

that heard

every

word.

That is exactly what you should do

What I’ve learned about me


DSCN2007 (2)

I feel like lately I’ve learned a couple of things about myself; that I don’t really care for small talk.  I love deep in-depth conversations where I can learn something new. I prefer a one on one where there’s two people talking sometimes one at a time and sometimes at the same time. I love that I know that about myself. The second thing that I just learned is that I hate to feel like I’m being made to do something. Something gently, not too pushy, not all over me; I don’t like that. I’m glad that I can admit that.~It’s Me
