When I am faced with conflict I know how to handle myself.
In order to communicate effectively, I take my time to respond, never answering abruptly.
I take deep breaths and speak slowly.
I listen to the other person’s point of view. I can listen to others without interruption.
When someone is talking, I am genuinely listening and not just planning my next statement.
When I communicate with others, I respect their point of view.
My goal in communicating is not to be right, but to be work well with others.
I simply need to find a common ground for us to get along and accomplish our goals.
When I speak, I communicate my point of view in a way that is easy to understand.
My words and tone are chosen carefully.
When others speak to me, I repeat back what I hear to be sure that I understand them.
When I speak to them, I ask them to do the same, so I know they fully understand my meaning.
My experience has taught me that people communicate differently.
People of different genders or cultures communicate in many diverse ways.
I am aware of these differences and honor them when I speak to others.
My speech is free from accusations and whining. I can share my feelings and ask for what I need in order to effect change.
When my speech is clear, I get the results I desire from every conversation.
