Here are three behaviors that disrupt communication and what you can do about them…
Behavior #1: Name Calling
Regardless of the word you chose, name calling during an argument indicates a lack of respect for the other person. It’s often hurtful and shuts down communication which is the exact opposite of your goal.
Behavior #2: Blaming
You can’t grow as a person if you’re not willing to take responsibility for your actions. You also hurt your relationship and those around you with your stubborn refusal to own up.
Behavior #3: Shaming
the problem with using shame to communicate is that it damages your relationship and it hurts the other person. At its core, shame is about making the other person feel small so you can feel big.
