We all sometimes need to interact with mean, rude and horrible people.
Sometimes this is a part of our work, other times it is somebody in our family.
Here are 3 pointers that will help you to deal better with these situations.
- No feedback is a feedback. If you expect certain behaviours or comments not to happen again- you need to voice it out.
- People do not need to understand you to respect you. Even when they don’t get where you coming from, they still should respect you. Communicate this clearly to them.
- Avoid them if possible. If this is not achievable, minimise interactions to minimum. The more people will react that way- the bigger the change the message will be received and encourage change of behaviour.
If you have a challenging relationship with your boss, somebody in your team or a family member and you are looking for better communication methods to deal with unwelcome behaviour- get in touch. Creating bespoke strategies unique for your life circumstances is my speciality!
