Finding A ‘Truth Nugget’ Can Defuse Arguments

We all want to communicate in a direct, clear way. That can become difficult when we’re feeling verbally bullied.

Bullying can come in the form of aggressive questions at a meeting, when sitting around the table at a family gathering, or dealing with a co-worker on the job. These queries or remarks can catch us off-guard and make us feel defensive. Too often we lash out at the bully, or we withdraw. Either response is likely to feel upsetting.

What if you could remove the power from that aggressive person, deflect their argumentative remarks, and avoid a verbal confrontation?
