As a follow on from my ‘Rules of the Road’ blog, below are some more of my rules of the road. The following allows us to get past the point of no return, and allows us to take control.
- Always clear the air so that disagreements don’t stay disagreements for long;
- Accept that you’re wrong when you are wrong;
- Try not to finish a conversation on a bad note and if you can’t agree, try to look for a compromise.
It is important to open our mind to what is being said, to stop reading between the lines and avoid hearing what you want, rather than what you may need to hear.
