About Z Form
Z Form is the form to initiate or improve a genuine human connection!
(Not necessarily politically correct)
A Z Form can be used as an ice breaker when forming a new connection or as a tool to deepen an existing one. It is a customizable consent form that gives written permission from the receiving party that they understand the terms of this particular connection (casual interaction or important discussion), event or activity that will be taking place.
Most commonly consent forms are used in medical practice due to the risks involved with the many procedures. Additionally, consent may also be used for photography, video, the use of content or any other act that may need permission by the issuer.
Effective and informed communication has become increasingly difficult due to a variety of issues. Current societal trends have created an atmosphere of polarization and intolerance. Moreover, political correctness has thrown another obstacle in potential and productive communication due to fear of offending someone, this Z Form helps dial the conflict down and mutual understanding up!
The Z Form provides an individualized tool to initiate clear and understanding communication within potentially difficult situations, those that may be fraught with misunderstandings and assumptions. Z Form prompts a potential conversation while giving the recipient the chance to either agree or not agree to the proposal. It provides an opportunity to think through what you want to say before actually saying it. It memorializes the expectations of the interaction and adds a formality to the expected or proposed boundaries.
Z Form provides a template to follow with personalized options to choose from. It gives you the option to include witnesses if desired and/or to keep the discussion/interaction confidential.
