Do you remember when Damali was interviewed by Better Connecticut on how to avoid conflict at home using the G.R.E.A.T. framework? Here’s a little preview:
G is for Generate: Tell those close to you that you are trying to make a change.
R is for Restart a conversation – it’s ok to ask to start a conversation over.
E is for Engage: Try non-complementary behavior. If someone yells, talk lower. If someone frowns, smile.
A is for Apologize: Say I’m sorry that I did (what you did) because (why you are sorry).
T is for Try Again: Keep trying these tips again and again until you get better at them.
