Using the handout from this month’s Remarkable Leadership teleseminar as a discussion guide, we talked about some really powerful concepts related to communicating change. This is one of the many ideas we discussed: Change can be driven by facts, but people are driven by emotions. As we discussed this observation, we spoke about the importance of connecting with the emotional response that people often have to change rather than ignoring or minimizing it. We also covered some practical tips for connecting with emotions more effectively. You may have many opportunities to discuss change and the impact of change with your team this year. When you do, remember to acknowledge, address, and understand the emotional component of change in your comunications. Photo based on work by Rennet Stowe.

When you find yourself communicating with a person who is outgoing and task-oriented (primary Dominant behavioral style), remember these key communication tips: Get to the point quickly — offer the results or conclusions and then your data or analysis. Focus on results and outcomes — process and feelings are less important to them than results. Give them options — they want the opportunity to choose. Look them in the eye and speak-up — they seldom have patience for people who do not have confidence. Show them respect — they also want you to show respect for them, their position, and their work. Remember these suggestions the next time you interact with people who are fast-paced and task-oriented, and you will improve the odds that they listen to, understand, and take action on your message.

Three Actions You Can Take to De-escalate Conflicts | Guy Harris.

The Recovering Engineer

Subscribe to Receive Updates Home About This Blog Archives Great Reading Contact Me my business about me Communication Skills Persuasion DISC Model Family Relationships Parenting Leadership Skills Post Series Reflections Decision Making From Our Cats Personal Change Resolving Conflict Problem Solving Video Browse > Home / Gallery , Resolving Conflict / Three Actions You Can Take to De-escalate Conflicts Three Actions You Can Take to De-escalate Conflicts October 6, 2010 by Guy Harris Filed under Gallery , Resolving Conflict Leave a Comment In a previous post on exercising your power of choice to get conflicts under control, I mentioned some specific actions to consider using to de-escalate conflicts. In this post, I’m expanding on three of the actions with some additional thoughts on how to put them to work in your conflict resolution repertoire. Here are three things you can do in virtually any conflict situation to improve the outcome. 1. Apologize I seldom see conflict situations where all of the miscommunication, misunderstanding, or misinterpretation of intentions rests entirely on one person. You might not be totally at fault for the challenge that led to the conflict. Odds are, there is something you contributed to the early stages that helped it to escalate. Whatever that behavior, word choice or tone was, apologize for it. Don’t apologize for how the other person feels or how they interpreted your actions. You can apologize for the action itself. Apology is a powerful way to de-escalate conflict. When you apologize, remember that apologizing for your contribution does not mean that you have to take all of the blame. Just own your contribution. 2. Forgive Just as you should apologize for your contribution, be ready to accept their apology or ownership of responsibility. Resist the urge to take advantage of their show of vulnerability. Just forgive graciously. In practice, you don’t even have to wait for an apology to forgive. You can forgive simply because you chose to do so. (And you can do it without holding it over the other person. Remember the gracious part.) 3. Listen As a general rule, people feel less angry or frustrated when they feel understood. When you listen without interrupting, correcting, or debating, you can help the other person feel understood. When you help them feel understood, you improve the odds of de-escalating the conflict. I don’t propose that these actions are necessarily easy to do when emotions are high and the conflict is escalating. While they might not be easy to do, they are possible to do. And they are powerful steps you can consciously apply to help conflicts move towards resolution. Photo by Eric and Deanna Pesik.

In fact some conflict can actually be good. The difference is whether the conflict is constructive or destructive. The challenge is that the emotional energy, body language, and other external signs of the conflict can look the same to an outside observer. So, how can you tell the difference between a constructive conflict and a destructive conflict? Here are three tell-tale signs to help you distinguish between the two types. Constructive conflict conversations focus on issues. Destructive conflict conversations focus on people. Constructive conflict conversations focus on the future. Destructive conflict conversations focus on the past. Constructive conflict conversations bring people together to solve a problem. Destructive conflict conversations create polarization and division within an organization. If a conflict conversation is constructive, let it go to completion. It is likely to turn out well. If a conflict conversation is destructive, use the Seven Secrets for Resolving Personal Workplace Conflict to move the conflict in a positive direction. Photo by jphilipg.

One Way To Guarantee That Your Suggestion Is Ignored

The Recovering Engineer

Subscribe to Receive Updates Home About This Blog Archives Great Reading Contact Me my business about me Communication Skills Persuasion DISC Model Family Relationships Parenting Leadership Skills Post Series Reflections Decision Making From Our Cats Personal Change Resolving Conflict Problem Solving Video Browse > Home / Communication Skills , Family Relationships , Leadership Skills , Parenting , Persuasion / One Way To Guarantee That Your Suggestion Is Ignored One Way To Guarantee That Your Suggestion Is Ignored May 24, 2010 by Guy Harris Filed under Communication Skills , Family Relationships , Leadership Skills , Parenting , Persuasion 1 Comment I have noticed one behavior many of us use that almost guarantees that our suggestions, solutions, and opinions will be ignored when we offer them: We tell people what to do before we have heard their whole story. When we offer people suggestions, solutions, and opinions before we have heard them out, they often do not care what we have to say. So, they rarely listen to and fully comprehend what we are suggesting. The suggestion might be useful. It might be right on target. It might be exactly what the other person needs to hear. And, they probably won’t hear it. If you speak too soon, you’re just trying to push fluid into an already full container. Offering suggestions before people have told their whole story is like having a doctor prescribe medication or treatment before listening to all of the symptoms. I once had numbness and tingling in my foot. I went to my doctor, and he asked a whole battery of questions before prescribing a treatment plan. He asked about my physical activity, other pains or sensations I had in other parts of my body, how my leg felt, etc. In the end, we identified the source of the numbness in my foot to be a problem in my lower back. It could have been any number of other problems. If he had jumped on the numbness in my foot without digging further into my other symptoms, he could have prescribed a wonderful treatment for a problem that had nothing to do with my problem. In this case, he chose to diagnose the problem before he prescribed a solution. When we work with other people, we need to keep this idea in mind. We may have valuable experience to offer. We may have seen this problem before. We might even have a great, simple solution to offer. And it just doesn’t matter if we offer the suggestion, solution, or opinion in a way that virtually guarantees that the other person ignores or discounts our input. As you work with others and attempt to share your experience, remember the lesson from my doctor: Ask, listen, and diagnose before you prescribe.
