Improving Communication: 5 Chairs

Lately, I am realizing that I need to work more on my communication. I find that I am thinking more before I speak, and though not-so-nicely-said things sometimes fly out of my mouth, I am getting better, and it is good for me to recognize the change in myself, so that I might continue to improve.

A few days ago, I was looking for videos on how to communicate better and how to resolve conflict, and I came across this TEDx talk with Louise Evans. She introduces us to 5 different ways of responding in any given situation. I realized that I have sat all these chairs, depending on the situation, but I have chosen to sit in the first two chairs far too often. I am really looking forward to putting this visualization technique into practice in my home.

Love and Light,
