When you wonder what could be in the way of your conversations or interactions with another person, spend time with these grids. I hope they inspire you to think deeply about what could be going on in the other person’s world. We get furthest in our relationships with others when we consider the invisible rather than resorting to simple snap judgements.
Before you peruse the grids, always consider the basics first:
- Did the person simply “wake up on the wrong side of the bed” this morning?
- Did they simply feel “under the weather” for the day?
- Did I recently say or do something that would cause this person to behave differently than I expect or desire?
These grids will be updated occasionally, so check back each time you wish to use them!
