    25: 3 Things to do When Someone is Yelling at You

    25: 3 Things to do When Someone is Yelling at You

    I was speaking to a friend who shared his experience of someone yelling at him. It sounded incredibly unpleasant, not just for him, but also for the person yelling. In the end, no one enjoyed the interaction and no one got what they wanted.

    That gave me an opportunity to pause and take a look at why we yell, why it is so ineffective, and what we can do about it.

    In this episode, I give 3 powerful tips on what you can do when someone is yelling at you in order to calm down the situation and have a better chance at resolving it.

    In this episode, I share 3 lessons I gleaned from my experience of being in this heated argument that you can use the next time you find yourself in a similar situation.

Actionable takeaways

This is a fantastic podcast - Jon is a great interviewer and clearly very passionate about helping people better express themselves with each other. After each podcast I find that I immediately have new communication skills that impact my day-to-day life. I recommend this podcast to anyone who is looking to improve how they connect with other people. Thanks Jon.

Very insightful

I learned not only about how to more effectively communicate with others, but be more mindful of my biases and what judgements I make about others
