30767740.thbA “formula” for how to have difficult conversations.

Podcast Overview:

Do you ever feel like you wish you could talk with someone about something, but you just don’t do it?

Maybe you’re scared, worried you’ll hurt the peace, or that the other person is not “emotionally mature” enough to handle it?

I believe that 99.999% of the time, you CAN have honest, vulnerable conversations with people that leave you both far better off. (Yes — even the person you might be thinking “not them!” about right now.)

I, and many of my friends, use a “formula” to  hold these conversations – and the results are generally miraculous.

Listen to this episode if you have something you want to share but you’re not sure about how to go about it.

Resources Mentioned In This Episode:

The formula (listen to the podcast for full detail on this)

Honesty – “I want to share something that feels scary to bring up…”
Their perspective – “I know you’ve been doing your best by x, x, and x…”
What’s going on for you – What you’re having a hard time with
Ask to come to a win-win together
Thank them

  1. My day job is in human resources, and in the field, we call this “Walking the Cube”. It’s “What I’ve observed”, “What I think this means for you (ie my judgements)”, “how I feel about it” and “the ask”. It works SO well!
