Okay raise your hand if you have gotten into an argument with your significant other, sibling, kids, parents. At some point we have all had a fight with someone we know. Sometimes we feel it’s important to have the last work and end the argument. Or maybe you are trying to end it and the other person just won’t back down.
Turns out there are just two words that can put and end to it. Thanks to mediation expert Alexandra Carter she suggests a two word phrase can defuse an argument and help you come to an agreement. The words are “Tell Me.”
Totally seems simple right. She says the phrase is “the ultimate open question” that can be used in relationships with kids. at work, or anywhere else you might be in a disagreement. It will basically change the perspective.By using “Tell Me,” it moved it from a black and white view of a situation into a “learning conversation” where we get unstuck and understand more about the issues.
