How to Approach a Difficult Conversation
There are boundaries we must maintain, difficult conversations we must have, and conflicts and disagreements we must not hide from (all of which can be internal as well as external). These don't have to be judgmental, negative conversations. We can speak up and out in a respectful, fact based, curious way...who knows what we might learn, what relationships we might build, and what positive change we might influence when we do. When we use attack or bully tactics, people go into fight or flight mode. Even if we "win" with this approach, usually in the long run we've ultimately lost. What is one difficult situation or relationship that you've been avoiding dealing with, or going at it with blame, criticism & demonizing? Are you willing to see it differently? Can you practice this approach with it today?
