Preemptive – serving or intended to preempt or forestall something, especially to prevent attack by disabling the enemy.
As men, we all too often find ourselves not communicating our plans and not taking action before any number of events. As a result, we can sow discord and distrust with those closest to us.
When we make the effort to be preemptive, we get out in front of a situation by choosing to openly and transparently discuss and share plans, contingencies, and other possibilities that may exist. That level of preparedness not only positively impacts us but those around us, as well.
In this episode of Untaming Masculinity, Dan and Brad dive into the concept of preemptiveness and why there is a remarkable power in choosing to preempt situations both personally and professionally. The guys discuss why choosing to be preemptive creates a level of trust in those around you and how choosing to communicate will enable you to avoid common pitfalls that men find themselves struggling with.
