The Simple Secrets to Overcome Communication Problems
I think it’s safe to say that Alfred and I aren’t the only ones that can miscommunicate.
As I’ve learned in the kitchen there are tricks to make things tastier (I’m trying to learn how to cook and I’m starting with some simple recipes), there are also tricks to make communication easier.
Not perfect! That would be impossible. But let’s just say, very easy to manage.
Today’s video is all about how to get our message across without getting louder, using the cold shoulder, mind reading, or giving up.
When I get a little lazy and don’t apply these tricks I end up approaching my husband with, “I told you! I absolutely told you! We talked about this. I thought we were on the same page?”
Oops! I wasn’t. I might’ve used a little mind reading.
We can’t get it right every time, but the more we try the more it becomes a habit.
These simple secrets make it ridiculously easy to overcome any communication problems.
After you watch the video, try the 2 simple secrets in your communication this week and see if it improves, catch yourself where you might not have stuck to it, and write about it in your journal.
It’s good to reflect on your practice and to share with someone, even your partner what you are trying to do.
In the business world, it’s recommended to keep accountability partners, someone we share with what we will commit to and report to them our progress.
Give it a try. I’m cheering you on!
