I often hear people often say that they don't have time to listen, yet, they expect others to hear them. First, effective listening means that conversations are more productive and shorter (and you won't need to repeat the discussion), so the time thing is invalid. Second, the way to encourage listening is first to demonstrate it yourself. They may not copy you, but you are more likely to get their attention and set the scene for meaningful conversation.
Feelings and impressions are powerful drivers in relationships. Their impact can be creative, or destructive. Usually, we only start to think about things like trust and respect when they are lost or threatened. That's a bit late, but it's never too late.
Having a difficult conversation may be scary, but it is the route to happy resolution rather than angry conflict.
If someone is resisting you, or your advice, it can be annoying, frustrating and even destructive. The eventual result can be worse than you imagined and certainly not what you intended.
We quite often hear people using the media to complain about humour being a sign of disrespect. But it ain't necessarily so. We have reason to be suspicious of those who claim that humour is out of place. When it's genuine, that is.
