The GPS pointing you toward connective communication.
You never take me into account!
What a ridiculous proposal!
Act normal for once!
People say the craziest things in a conflict. This makes you crash head-on with your conversation partner and do more harm than good. ‘Round about, connection when communication jams’ will allow you to discover that there is a connective alternative to judgements, wanting to be right and making demands.
A conflict is not exactly a breeding ground for connection. On the contrary, blaming and judging causes a short circuit with your conversation partner. And a damaged (working) relationship that is difficult to recover.
‘Round about, connection when communication jams’ will inspire you to create a connection when things aren't running smoothly. You will get answers to the following questions:
● How do I make a connection with someone?
● How do I achieve a win-win situation?
● How can I open myself up more to others?
● How do I let others know what I want myself?
Be more of a giraffe than a jackal
A jackal thinks only of himself and wants to be right. The consequence? More conflict than connection. But a giraffe is empathetic and looks for a win-win. You’ll see how to become more of a giraffe and less of a jackal less with ‘Round about, connection when communication jams’. Your benefit? Less conflict, more genuine connection and more harmony for everyone.
‘Every time you come into contact with someone, you make a transaction on the other person's emotional bank account. By accusing and demanding, you symbolically deduct a small or large amount from his or her account. On the other hand, if you try and make a connection, you transfer an amount to his or her emotional account.’
