How to have difficult conversations that can end well? Yes, this is a skill you can learn. Now, more than ever, difficult conversations are everywhere. You and many people around you are full of fear and anxiety, understandably. You–and they–are feeling discomfort and disappointment. You are struggling but trying to do your best to keep a ‘clean mindset’. And yet, everywhere there are others who are also very upset, and hostile conversations are happening.
How can you do a better job in those—since they are so frequent right now? I share my experience and my knowledge about this in the video because there ARE ways to do this right. First, you must accept that your perspective is yours alone. And the person on the other side of that conversation has a different perspective, based on their life and their experiences.
In the video, I help you understand the steps to listening well and how much that can change the nature and the outcome of those potentially nasty discussions. It is worth it to take the time, now, to learn about this so that you are prepared the next time an interaction with someone is starting to get confrontational. You’ll be able to pull back and have that difficult conversation in a manner that will be less stressful, less damaging, and more effective. And, if you recognize that it will work for you, ‘Like’ and ‘Share’ it to help others. Maybe, together, we can ‘turn down the temperature a bit’ in our world and help everyone feel a little less anxious and unsettled.
