Communication with One Another in Peace

cksmHow to communicate in Peace. Finding your own Peace within in order to have Peace without. The greatest issue facing all of us is how we communicate to one another.
We can’t control how others communicate in our world but we can work locally and control how we communicate to each other in Peaceburgh.

Poor Communicators: communicate in criticism and put downs.
Good Communicators: don’t comment on everything the other says and just agree that it is okay to have different opinions.

Poor Communicators: neither person feels respected in the conversation or feels they have been listened to. Poor communicators are too busy defending their need to be right.
Bringing up the shoulds, this ‘you should do this, sales that, and that other thing… I’m beyond frustrated with YOU! You are not listening to me.’
Good communicators: stay on topic, do their best to be specific about the problem without the need to punish. They work to find a solution both parties can live with.
Negotiate, negotiate, negotiate, and be willing to find something you should do to make it work!

Poor Communicators: Don’t listen, interrupt the partner; show contempt by mocking, rolling eyes, insulting their opinion, glaring at the other person, finger pointing, raised voice, deepened emotions in voice, screaming, and then leaving. Showing stubbornness by I won’t “give in,” then deadly silence.
Good communicators: Listen carefully, give empathy and positive responses, assume responsibility for your own feelings (“I” statements) overlook the insults and focus back on the complaint. Take ownership of individual issues, lack of self-esteem, need to control, need to be right, need to have it my way. Truly know when it’s an “I” issue or the other’s issue. Continue to work to negotiate.

Poor Communicators: Respond to criticism with defensiveness, such as denying everything, turning it around, getting off topic, making excuses, finding fault, saying you always on my case, which are tactics of avoiding the immediate problem and the wiliness to change.
Good Communicators: Respond to constructive criticism as useful information (not an as an insult or threat), Thank you, I didn’t ‘see’ that or I didn’t ‘get’ that. Empathy works miracles. Recognizing none of us are perfect, we all have issues, we don’t see our own ‘stuff’ in the situation. Gifting the other the benefit of the doubt. I believe you want the best in this relationship. I trust you want this to work.
