When communicating with someone, be fully present. Put your phone away, turn off the TV, and focus on the person you're talking to.
When the other person is talking, listen actively. Please understand what they are saying and try to understand their perspective.
If you don't understand something, ask questions. This behavior shows that you are interested in what the other person has to say and can help you clarify your understanding.
Even if you disagree with the other person, respect their feelings and opinions. Remember that everyone is entitled to their perspective.
If you can't find a solution that meets all your needs, be ready to compromise. This path shows they are willing to work together to find a solution for everyone involved.
