Successful Conversations – Part II: The Power of Your Words

"Never" and "Always" in a conversation are such absolute words that almost no discussion can take place and, due to the aggressive nature of these two words, it ends up in a dispute with mutual attack and defense methods. In a conversation, discussion or argument, there are different ways in which we can influence the further course of events.

Gespräche erfolgreich führen – Teil II: Die Kraft deiner Worte

«Nie» und «immer» in einem Gespräch sind so absolute Worte, dass beinahe keine Diskussion mehr stattfinden kann und es aufgrund der angreiferischen Natur dieser beiden Worte eher in einem Streitgespräch mit gegenseitiger Angriffs- und Abwehrmethodik endet. In einem Gespräch, einer Diskussion oder einem Streit gibt es verschiedene Arten, wie wir den weiteren Verlauf beeinflussen können.

Many people are currently struggling to set themselves apart from other people, especially during this pandemic, when we live much closer and more prolonged with the people in our household. Where we otherwise have some catalysts and variety in our everyday life, be it at work, in our own circle of friends or at our own appointments to balance it out, we have rarely been together with our dearest ones as continuously and intensely as we are now.
