Road Trip Serves Up Important PR Reminder
27th June 2012 · 0 Comments
Summer road trips have begun for the Brown family. Our first excursion took us to Arkansas. An interesting exchange in the backseat between my mother-in-law and four-year-old son was the inspiration for this blog post. My mother-in-law was lamenting about the copious amount of door dings that pepper our four door sedan. “People are so rude these days!” she said. “No they’re not,” said my son from his car seat. “Yes they are!” she fired back. “No they’re not,” he said flatly once more. The conversation reminded me of two things: that only having one child has its advantages, and that our own bias can get in the way of effectively communicating to our audience groups.
There’s nothing I can do to change her perception. Her beliefs are firm. What I can do is draw from this experience as a poignant reminder of why it is important to remember my own bias on various subjects and how important it is to keep it out of what I write for varying audience groups.
