Communication: Courtroom, lawyer, defendant, plaintfiff?
|October 26, 2010||Filled under Life|
Some people communicate as if they were in a court of law and the person they are speaking with is their judge. They feel as if they need to explain themselves, defend themselves to this perceived â€œjudgeâ€. What they really need to understand is that they are not being tried in a court of law; however, if they find themselves needing to explain and defend, did they do something wrong?
If something wrong was done or if they are being blamed, itâ€™s best to become the lawyer and not the defendant and turn that judge into a plaintiff instead. This becomes a more positive experience for both parties and the initially defendant person can become an equal in the communication process rather than give up their power to the â€œjudgeâ€.
As a lawyer you can question the plaintiff and find out if thereâ€™s any truth to what they have to say. You do this by â€œexaminingâ€ or â€œdiscoveringâ€ rather than â€œdefendingâ€ which ultimately is unproductive and subjugates.
