When the conversation needs to happen
But you just know it is going to end in a fight....
I used to prepare for a hard conversation for weeks
I would write my part out
Run it by someone
Plan for possible responses and memorize accordingly
Because as important as the words are
The feeling behind the words is infinitely more important
Trying to dress up and layer sugar and pretty words over top of
Does. Not. Work.
It flavors every word you say.
Create a connecting conversation by coming at it from a space that is clean.
Switch blame for empowerment
Frustration for calm
Justification for confidence and
Defensiveness for peace
And THEN see the words that come from your mouth
Calm and unrehearsed
And make a "difficult" conversation not difficult at all
By changing only one person.
The one you truly do control.
What are some thoughts you can choose that help you feel
Empowerment instead of blame?
Calm instead of frustrated?
Confident instead of justified?
Peaceful instead of defensive?
Need help coming up with some peace in a relationship with conflict?
I can help.

"What I like most about coaching with Jenn was that she broke down step by step ways to change thought patterns, and also gave us assignments - she was an accountability partner for change."
