Episode 043 - Conflict Resolution

Welcome to the Motivating Mom podcast. Today, we are talking about resolving conflict…

Let’s talk about conflict

How often do you have conflict with your kids?

With your husband?

At work?

Did you know that 10% of conflict is due to difference in opinion and 90% is due to delivery and tone of voice.

Just changing the tone of one word can make a huge difference. Let’s try this one.

The sentence is I never said she stole my money.

with each word changing in emphasis, the meaning changes

I never said she stole my money.

I never said she stole my money.

I never said she stole my money.

I never said she stole my money.

We often focus on what to say when how we stay it is as important.

It doesn’t matter if you title it transactional analysis or non violent communication or anything else for that matter. What it is is good communication. Pretty simple. Treat people how you want to be treated. Assume people have good motives.
