208) Crucial Conversations

No matter who you are or what you do, you can’t avoid an occasional interaction that you sense will be, well, tense, contentious or generally uncomfortable. In these moments, your gut gives you two options: prepare for battle or run and hide.

However, according to authors of the book Crucial Conversations there is a third option. When communication is headed towards conflict, these authors encourage you to ask yourself three questions:

  • One, what do you want for this person?
  • Two, what do you want for yourself?
  • And, three, what do you want for the relationship?

The benefit of reflecting on these questions is that this line of thinking pulls your brain out of the primitive “fight or flight” mindset and engages a higher order of consideration. That alone will soften tensions and get you in the right frame of mind to empower a more productive result.

192) Use The F Word

You aren’t perfect. And neither are the people around you. As such, it’s only a matter of time before someone, somehow creates hardship for you. Some will be big, other small and many transgressions lay somewhere in between.

Whatever the case, in these moments what do you do? Simple. You’re best to quickly use the F-word. No, not that F-word. The appropriate F-word is forgiveness. Take hold of your emotions and quietly allow any malice or resentment built inside you to quietly subside.

No, this is not easy. In fact, it can at times be hard. But when you forgive, you can move forward without a lingering grudge zapping your energy or distracting your focus.

Plus, this is a great way to build trust within your network. You see, when you forgive, people become comfortable dealing with you. They know that you will eventually look past their occasional errors and shortcomings.

Use the F word.
