The series on the Core Commitments continues by addressing the next two subsections of “Engage when present”: “Always seek effective help” and “Decline to offer and refuse to accept incoherent emotional transmissions”. Seeking effective help is something everyone can improve upon and strengthens relationships. It helps you build trust and become more trustworthy. When you seek effective help you come away as more powerful, more enriched. Jim and Michele also discuss incoherent emotional transmissions – how to recognize when you are behaving in a way that is incoherent and what to do about it.
