Labelling & Describing
LABELLING & DESCRIBING
Think about the last time you told a family member about your day. Or updated your manager on a project. Did you describe or did you label? It’s a question many of us don’t think about. Describing tells us what happened, but labelling filters that experience through our own perception. Describing allows for communicating and problem solving, while labelling taps into stereotypes and hidden biases. My invitation to you is to start monitoring the words you use: are you describing or are you labelling? Have you any instances of using labelling instead of describing and were there any unintended consequences of your action? Please comment below. I’d love to hear your stories and your thoughts!
