Host Timothy Regan welcomes his friend Shawn to share a story about how he approached his landlords to ask for a break in his rent – a common experience in these times.
As we hear the story, Timothy reminds us of the helpful tips that come from the world of Nonviolent Communication, so that you listener can be more prepared and successful the next time you have a difficult conversation.
A difficult conversation is one where:
- You care a lot about the outcome
- You might be angry or scared as you approach the conversation
- You care about protecting your relationship as well
