Three Quick and Dirty Nonverbal Tips for Depersonalizing Conflict
While some people seem to thrive on conflict, most of us dread having to deliver negative information, broach a sensitive subject, or give bad news. Why? Because the recipient can easily use the messenger—you—as the target for their anxiety or anger. Whether they have a “fight” or “flight” response to the negative information, you may bear the brunt of it.
But we have good news! These specific nonverbal skills can help keep YOU separate from the problem. By communicating that you are “safe” and detaching yourself from the issue, you reduce the stress level and keep yourself out of harm’s way. Not only will this make life way less unpleasant, but you’ll be able to preserve relationships and recover more quickly, meaning more work gets done.
