WARNING: This May Surprise You!
I Don't Tell You Not To Argue
You deserve to be heard and your perspective is worth hearing. You matter. The same is true for others in the conversation. So, I encourage you to share your views, especially when they are different. With these tools, you can share different perspectives effectively and respectfully. When clients do that, they can find a better idea than either they or the person they were talking with had when they started. Yelling not included.
This Course Doesn't Include Scripts
You can best speak for yourself by using your own words. So, while I will share a template to introduce a new perspective or topic, it requires you to use your own words.
