PROVOKING OTHERS

We aren’t usually aware of what peoples’ ‘hot buttons’ are except perhaps those of our family and friends and those we come to know well such as colleagues and co-workers. Even so, we didn’t always know what provoked them. New friends, colleagues and others start with a clean slate, too. It seems ‘hot buttons’ are things we often realize the hard way – through trial and error.

 

When we are provoked by something others say or do or even what they don’t say or do, many of us let…

BEING CLEAR ABOUT OUTCOMES WHEN IN DISPUTES

When emotions prevail during interpersonal conflict, many of us cannot easily think ahead to what we want as an outcome. If we acknowledge that possibility, we may do some preparatory work before we initiate a potentially conflictual discussion or get caught up in the middle of one. If we engage in some preliminary reflections, our actions and words will more likely be aligned with our objective. Otherwise, the likelihood of chaotic thinking and feelings is high and we end up conducting…

Carl Rogers, the First Transformative Mediator?

The founder of humanistic psychology, Carl Rogers, believed that empathy, genuineness, and unconditional positive regard were necessary and sufficient to effectuate positive change in his clients. It was not necessary, and probably not even helpful, as he saw it, for the therapist to advise the client what to do next. Dorothy Della Noce, in her chapter "The Case for Transformation: A Review of Theoretical and Empirical Support" in…

INTERRUPTING WHEN IN CONFLICT

It is common when we are in conflict, that as our emotions escalate, many of us tend to interrupt more and listen less. We interrupt for a number of reasons, including that we perceive that whatever is being said or done undermines and challenges something important for us. Or, we find it difficult to hear the truth or falsehood of what the other person is saying, or we figure we know what the person is about to say and have limited patience or time. Other reasons for interrupting may…

The Reaction Cycle: What happens when we react?

The other day I came home after a long day of work and put my bag down and said hi to my wife and son. I took off my shoes and my coat and draped it over my bag in the kitchen. The second my coat and shoes were off my wife asked me to take something outside to the garbage.

“What?? Can’t you see I just literally took my shoes and coat off? You couldn’t ask me that 2 seconds earlier?” was my response.

I reacted. I’m sure you can think of times where that has happened. How do you…

Myth #3: Broadcast, Broadcast, Broadcast

What would it be like if you went out for coffee with someone, tried to carry on a conversation with them (respond to what they are saying, ask questions, etc.) and they never stopped talking the entire time?  What if you asked them a question clarifying what they were talking about and they didn’t take the time to answer? What would you do? I know that I would get up and leave….and try to stick…
