Angela and Patti share communication tips at work. How to stay in a job and manage difficult relationships. How to ask yourself the right questions to determine how to manage your emotions.
A meme Patti saw - I’m sorry that your terrible behavior caused me to act out of character. You should work on that!
What does this meme tell you?
Take a look at yourself.
Is the relationship problem really you?
What is it about this person that triggers you?
Is it past behavior? Do they remind you of someone? Do they remind you of something you don’t like within yourself?
Angela: Is this a group issue or is it an issue just for you. Do others in workplace share your issue? This points to something missing in the group environment.
Use the PAUSE and REFLECT Technique
PAUSE for three to five seconds before responding. This gives you time to change your response or don’t respond at all.
What if you receive a nasty passive/aggressive email from your boss or coworker?
Before responding back to the email. Write out your response. Don’t send it! Walk away for awhile. Sleep on it, if you don’t have to respond within the same day. Then rewrite it when you have calmed down. Have someone else read it that you trust to help tone it down before hitting the send button.
What to consider:
Should I stay at my current employment or move on?
Make a list of "why to stay" and "why to go". Be upfront and honest. No holding back from the truth of the matter! Look at which column has the most reasons? Make your decision from there. Is there more good reason to stay? Or reasons to leave.
