What is it like to be on the receiving end of you?

Do you send ripples of acceptance, love and understanding to the people around you? Or do you feed people indifference, dismissiveness, unfairness and a lack of kindness?

Take a few minutes to think about:

  1. How is your behaviour when you are stressed or under pressure?
  2. What is it like to be on the receiving end of you when you are busy?
  3. How do you treat people when you have a different point of view?

Although we are not fully responsible to how people react to us,  it is good to reflect upon how your behaviour can impact other people around you, whether this is at work, in relationships or with family members.

Taking time to reflect will allow time to ponder over how you come across to others and how people respond to you and why.  In an ideal world people would feel listened to, energised and inspired by your rather than drained or unheard.

The receiving end of you

Here are a few tips to consider when communicating with others:

  • Get honest about your own behaviour
  • Take ownership of your own negative emotions
  • Identify what negative beliefs may be impacting your behaviour?
  • Take personal responsibility for positive relationships
  • Speak from the heart
  • Actively listen
  • Know your stress triggers
  • Be vulnerable and transparent
  • Aim for Win Win

Just do your best

Although how other people view us is not under our own control,   learning to reflect on your own behaviours allows us to take personal responsibility and ensure that you are acting in alignment with your own values, authenticity and integrity.  Always remember though – We can’t please them all!
