PPI

PPI…is something we ping pong around the office on a very regular basis. It stands for PRESSUME POSITIVE INTENT and it has saved our sanity, manier time!

I was reading lately how we’re all wired, and the brain really only operates this way – to feel fear and anxiety. Which, when you think about it, makes sense – we’re animals. Geared and built to protect and why we still have such string ‘fight and flight’ instincts. So, when we go into situations, the default is to think of the worst, the risks, what could go wrong, how someone feels towards us, the ways this situation will fuck right up! Mother nature designed us this way and no, it’s not you being a pessimist.

When a teammate shares their worries openly we chat about it, but we normally conclude – PPI. And, 9 times out of 10, no one is trying to stitch you up, ignore you on purpose, hurt you, disrespect you…that actually the lifesaver is to just PPI IT all the way!
