EPISODE 246 We slip into communication patterns when we fail to develop a variety of responses to people’s comments, we become predictable and we aren’t prepared for conversations where we’re caught off guard. We often go silent when someone says something we don’t like, hurts our feelings or we disagree with. You can handle a political environment if you understand how the conversation works and how to turn it around.

 

STUFF WE LEARN IN THIS EPISODE
Avoiding conflict is our first response when we don’t know what to say. Don’t abdicate your responsibility of how people treat you. Increase what your responses can be so you can opt out of the predictable patterns.

It’s possible to treat rude comments in other ways than we often take them in. Treat them as objective queries or find an element of logic.

7 Ways to Turn Around a Negative Conversation

  1. Cast the other person’s words in a new light.
  2. Rephrase your words in a less negative way.
  3. Revisit an earlier success to redefine a current failure.
  4. Restate, clarify or redirect negative wording.
  5. Request. Ask about a person’s intention.
  6. Adjust the other person’s power.
  7. Reorganize. Change the priorities of the issues.
