Do not let people back you into a wall where you are viewed as the culprit, otherwise the bad person. Do the right thing whether someone is looking or not. Separate the person from the problem and avoid negative responses.
Establish a dialogue with your constituents and keep the conversation relevant. Stay focused and seek positive outcomes by keeping your mind on the goal and avoid aggression. Engage, bargain, and be productive.
Discuss your truth without aggression. If you are faced with an uncomfortable situation that harms you and others? Someone has to be willing to present clean dialogue in a way that begins the dialogue for others to participate so there is a conversation. I know that you are wonderful and there are positive ways for us to come to a solution.
Get to the root of the disagreement. Differences occur with people mostly because of perception. Ten people can receive a piece of information and each person will have a different view. Effective communication can be problematic. Have the courage to share how the information is affecting you.
Reciprocity is a concept that is often confused.
Social awareness. Sometimes you may have to concede to a thing in order to propel yourself forward. Do not waste energy on things that tear your spirit down.
