LGBT/straight social dilemmas for The Washington Post and is the author of five etiquette books Lisa Bonchek Adams is not necessarily a household name but she may well be remembered for having transformed how we understand death and dying The 45-year-old mother of three died last week after a very public battle with breast cancer For eight years after her initial diagnosis Adams shared her unvarnished story with her 15000 Twitter followers and untold numbers of blog and Facebook readers Among her last tweets: "Find a bit of beauty in the world today Share it If you can’t find it create it" Nothing was too personal to post including the failure of her chemo to stop the progression of the cancer and the "memory boxes" she made for her children The result was a bold reframing of the otherwise heavily shrouded truth about death more commonly shunted in our culture to lonely hospital rooms so as to avoid its "dirtiness and indecency" in the words of Philippe Aries author of The Hour of Our Death: The Classic History of Western Attitudes Toward Death Over the Last One Thousand Years Adams joins other victims of terminal illness such as Death With Dignity advocate Brittany Maynard and actor Leonard Nimoy who have announced or commented on their own deaths via social media Perhaps it was the volume of Adamss posts or their raw eloquence but the radical transparency was remarkable I myself have resisted this shift over the years even (or perhaps especially) when the diarists have been friends The day in 2006 that my friend Natalia Kraft then 39 was diagnosed with breast cancer she started a "Boob Blog" She continued for three years until her death to post photos of herselfhundreds of them Nat waving goodbye with a forced smile before her mastectomy Nat belted down to the gurney for a brain scan She wrote wrenching words about her private hell including this disarmingly simple sentence: "There are now tumors in my brain" I just didnt get it Id been diagnosed with cancer myself some twenty years prior to Natalia and never had any interest in sharing the intimacies of that chapterand certainly not my appearance I refused to be photographed once chemo had given me the haircut of a lifetime No question I was vain but I also didnt want anyone to see or suffer the fear in my eyes "Disease is private" Joyce Carol Oates wrote in Wonderland I couldnt have agreed more After Natalia posted that she had brain lesions her blog went dark for several weeks until the day her sister posted that she had died Instead of feeling sad about her passing however I found myself angry Not the sad kind directed at a loved one who is taken too soon No I was indignant Where was her sense of dignity Of privacy How dare she show us and make us share the fear Adams was criticized in much the same way begged not to turn her private suffering into a public circus Emma Gilbey Keller asked rhetorically in The Guardian last year “Should there be boundaries in this kind of experience” Paradoxically The Guardian removed Kellers story after it was revealed that she had violated Adams privacy by citing emails in her post and failing to let her know that she planned to publish them The year before NPRs Scott Simon tweeted his mothers last days to his 13 million followers from the ICU His story was captivating and emotional but met with some objection “I don’t think one can be fully present in the moment and tweet at the same time" Lizzy Miles a hospice social worker told the Huffington Post As a commenter wrote "This is sad that the only place this man can show his grief is on twitter with strangers Where is his priest pastor family members or a close best friend I think a keyboard is a sad shoulder to cry on" In the years since Natalias first blog post however I have developed a better understanding of whats going on here As it unfolded online Lisa Adams passage to death like Natalias revealed not just pain and sufferingbut also love all around I recalled how the outpouring of support from Nats friends had seemed boundless Could they take her to the doctor Make a meal Read with her Comfort her Do anything for her The "online community" often and disparagingly described as virtual became real and tangible As Adams’ condition worsened in recent weeks I stumbled upon a new book @Heaven: The Online Death of a Cybernetic Futurist which is the story of Tom Mandel a Stanford futurist who posted online about this own fight with lung cancer two decades ago I soon realized that the concept of a death blog dates all the way back to the invention of online communities themselves It was in the fall of 1994 when Mandel asked followers of his on The Well one of the first online bulletin boards for advice on how to shake a persistent cough In all too quick succession two spots were discovered on Mandels lung which then led to a diagnosis of terminal lung cancer In less than six months he died; the book is a transcript of those conversations among virtual friends About Mandel Douglas Rushkoff the noted professor of media theory at Queens College told me: "[T]he Well was this place where ideas and intellectual debate were always balanced by our deeply human need to connect with others Tom was always at that intersection of thought and feeling individuality and community" In that vein the outpouring of grief over Mr Mandels death was only surpassed by the efforts of the community to make sense of his passing As one member wrote: "Im sure that as your ending here has enriched me it has enriched many others a final inestimable gift to all of us" While its common to blame the Net and our smart phones for the isolation that does indeed plague our society as a whole it must be said that in some very important areas these technologies and platforms are breaking down barriers Thanks to my friend Natalia Tom Mandel Scott Simon and now Lisa Adams death can be seen as an intrinsic part of life Steven Petrow is

Understand the seven pillars of effective influence Believe that you can improve your negotiating skills and you can Early on First impressions are an even bigger deal than you thought A little spinning of the facts here can be a good thing There is a home field advantage in negotiation Even if youre not on home turf making yourself at feel at home can give you some of that advantage Be socially optimistic Expect that people will like you and they probably will Yes small talk is important Attitude Happiness makes you a better negotiator Think positive about the negotiation and give others a reason to do so as well Expecting others to be selfish can be a self-fulfilling prophecy Unless the other guy has few options and youll never see him again being nice is always the way to go The Big Guns Similarity mimicry and being in sync are all very powerful Always be thinking about things you have in common The first thing you should say in a negotiation is something very similar to what the guy on the other side of the table just said Mimicry is more powerful than you think There are solid persuasion lessons to be learned from top telemarketers great salesmen and FBI hostage negotiators Make them say "yes yes yes" and they will probably say yes Win-win is not always a winning strategy The key to resisting a convincing sales pitch is to think about money Know how to deal with angry people Know what is proven to work when buying a new car Know the common pitfalls in negotiations Attractive people should negotiate differently than ugly people Guilting others can work Subtle reminders of morality are good for keeping people fair Want to make sure they follow through Have them write it down There is a time and a proper way to threaten someone Communication There are many ways to speak more influentially Understand the best ways to kiss ass Ass-kissing is good for your health Using the word "we" can promote an instant feeling of familiarity with someone There are good techniques for dodging uncomfortable questions in a negotiation Learn how to be a better listener If what youre saying sounds final people will be more likely to accept it When youre a novice speak confidently When youre an expert on a subject act unsure Men are easier to persuade via email With women stick to face-to-face Learn about effective posture and body language If you want to increase the attractiveness of an offer your body language should be upbeat and sales-y If you want to reduce resistance think calm and authoritative Trying to seem smart makes you seem stupid We often prefer eloquence to honesty sadly Use rhetorical questions to be more persuasive And you do want to be more persuasive dont you Numbers We can be weird about numbers Sellers who listed their homes more preciselysay $494500 as opposed to $500000consistently got closer to their asking price We are irrationally positive toward hearing "100%" Yes we like $199 more than $200 even if we say we know its a trick Know how to anchor because it is ridiculously effective Little things Just remembering the other persons name makes you more persuasive Asking someone how they feel having them verbally respond and then acknowledging that response facilitates compliance Listen to what they have to say and ask them to tell you more Touch people Be funny Always ask if this is a good time Let them sleep on it People will be more likely to agree with you if you make your choice sound like the status quo Telling stories is powerful in negotiating "Obscenity at the beginning or end of the speech significantly increased the persuasiveness of the speech" Emotion is the key to being more credible when complaining Name dropping doesnt work (Nobody famous told me that) Obvious and insincere flattery does Bragging is all about context Having a third party praise you can influence others even if that third party is obviously biased Sit in the middle to be more influential during a meeting And repeat yourself No evidence can sometimes be more persuasive than weak evidence What are Jedi level tools of negotiation Coffee and a cheeseburger Practice is key Not sure if youre quite ready to put all this into action Well "fake it til you make it" does work This piece originally appeared on Barking Up the Wrong Tree Join over 145000 readers Get a free weekly update via email here Related
