In this video Dr. Sadaqat Ali talks about crucial conversation. Dr. Sadaqat Ali is a renowned addiction psychiatrist and project director of Willing Ways Pakistan.

We all have an inner voice that tells us when we need to have a difficult conversation with someone. For the past few years, respect for emotions has been given an enormous importance and Crucial Conversation emphasizes on emotions. We cannot force anyone to agree to our point of view but we should respect other’s opinion. Taking care of others as well as own emotions is important. It’s difficult to change other person but easier to change our own being. So the first principle of dialogue is to start with ourselves. Start with self talk and watch your vocabulary. Avoid using inappropriate words in your conversations.

Create safety for your own life as well as for others. Safety can be created showing respect to others even they have difference of opinion. We can ensure safety by attacking, labeling, and controlling others but it is not an appropriate way. Every crucial conversation comprises of three important parts, difference of opinion, high emotions and high stakes. In crucial conversation, we should be very careful about both verbal and non verbal component. Use logics, negotiations, decent vocabulary to make a crucial conversation successful. It’s important to work on resentments and the negative baggage from past because that can sabotage a crucial conversation. It’s also very important to show tolerance during conversation while expressing our emotions. Tolerance means respecting people who have different opinion or beliefs from yours. If you have the ability to tolerate you can go a very long way with it unlike endurance which has its limits. If you can learn to speak up in these crucial moments effectively, then you can accomplish the results you are after.
