  • 00:05:00 This video explains how to become more assertive in your conversations. It discusses how to prepare and adapt for an individual conversation, as well as how to minimize surprises. It advises arriving a few minutes ahead of time to establish important conversations in special, sacred spaces. When meeting in these types of locations, we arrive a few minutes ahead of the conversation. If we arrive late, we are more vulnerable to distraction and confusion. Arriving a little ahead of time allows us to enter calmly and enter into synchronization with the people there, as well as the sounds, lights, smells, and other elements present. These factors all affect our concentration and disposition in conversations. It is not sufficient to have three pre-selected compositions when trying to have a conversation. When you enter a conversation, be present and open. The other person will feel comfortable and be able to share what they want to share in a constructive way when you are focused on three parts of your body: your eyes, your arms, and your face.

  • 00:10:00 This video teaches how to listen attentively, in order to maintain a calm and neutral position in any conversation. It is important to adhere to your mantra mentally, to remain in your position, and to concentrate on the goal of the conversation, regardless of what the other person says or does. The goal of a conversation should never be to win or humiliate the other person, but to solve a problem. When positioning yourself from this place, you will understand that losing the role of dialogue leader is not the best decision. A conversation can go out of control when one of the parties does not feel heard or understood, and therefore takes the attitude of throwing the towel in. In that case, the advantage is that you will be able to know more about what the other person really wants and feels, while also not being obligated to become the dialogue casualty and tolerating bad parenting and quarrels if you find yourself wrapped up in this situation. Find the moment to interrupt the other person, calmly but firmly stating that the conversation has lost its conditions for continuation and that, therefore, you are terminating your participation. You can also offer to resume the conversation when the other person recovers those conditions, by making the distinction between a civilized conversation between adults and an outburst and catharsis session
