This is the time of year when many of us find ourselves stressed and dealing with people who push our buttons whether on purpose or by accident.

Buttons are those areas that when touched on by someone in the course of communication, make us react. Some are bigger buttons than others but everyone has them and we all need tools for handling the communication when those buttons are approached or pushed.

I have come up with 10 Super Simple Tools you can use at a moment’s notice that will put you in control of these situations when they occur. Take these tools and practice with them. Then put them into your communication tool belt and go have some fun!

 

1. Understand that your buttons are your buttons.

2. Learn to steer the conversation away from sensitive subjects or areas.

3. Educate the people close to you what your buttons are and find out theirs.

4. If something has really upset you, go somewhere quiet and regroup.

5. Understand that a person’s hurtful comments have nothing to do with you.

6. Understand that certain relationships have buttons in common and need extra care and consideration.
