Diffusing difficult situations

Diffusing difficult situations

  • Avoiding challenging conversations allows room for assumptions and continuing negative behavior.
  • Meet with the person to understand their concerns.
  • Listen without expressing your opinion or point of view.
  • If there is high emotion involved, respectfully suggest that you meet again at a later time once everyone has reflected upon the challenge at hand. 
  • Focus on the goalof arriving at a beneficial and positive conclusion.
