With cancel culture becoming more and more mainstream, much like everything else, it’s bound to have its dark moments. The bigger it is, the harder it falls, right? At its extreme, it can be the complete downfall of your entire career.
Could one comment really destroy everything?
And is there anything you can do to avoid it?
It could be argued that the root problem is simply a lack of proper communication. And isn’t that with so many things? The wrong food at a restaurant, a fight with your spouse, a miscommunication at work.
So much can spiral out of hand from simply an error in communication.
At times, cancel culture leaves little room for error. With our lives literally at our fingertips on social media, it isn’t hard to dig up things we may have said or done when we just… didn’t know any better.
But certain people are quick to jump at the throat,
and not so quick to try and help.
Cancelling should be geared more towards the education of insensitivities, as opposed to simply stating someone is “over” and then hoping they drop off the face of the Earth.
If we aim for criminals to be rehabilitated, can’t we do the same here?
So what if you’re worried about being misunderstood? Instead of tiptoeing around the issue, Z-Forms may be able to help.
Akin to a consent form at a doctor’s office, Z-Forms has crafted a conversational-based version of a consent form. An ice breaker for a first date, meeting a new coworker or solving a current conflict-- the form lays everything out on the table in a respectful manner so misunderstandings can be better avoided.
A bond comes from a place of mutual understanding and respect. Starting out on the right foot is definitely key, and Z-Form gives both parties a chance to think and put down the important groundwork before beginning a conversation.
Instead of going around in circles chasing the same issue, this can bridge the gap to be able to lay everything on the table without fear of judgment. Lead that horse to water and make it drink!
