"I Can’t Believe You Said That!
Four Strategies for Creating Connection and Personal Engagement”
Obviously, no one intends to ruin the conversations or the relationships they are involved in! However, sometimes the way we speak and interact with others becomes a barrier when we need to talk about what matters most. During today’s challenging times, we can ill afford to unintentionally offend others. When a conversation begins to go awry, most individuals are challenged to speak up because of what they perceive the negative impact may be to them. Our individual differences show up in a display of different “Interaction” styles that are often different from the styles of others. Understanding the differences in individual styles allows us to “match” others’ styles and then to communicate and connect in a way that enhances mutual understanding and respect.
