Meeting times Vote: Thurs: 5pm (4) Friday 5pm (3)
I am trying to be reasonable by choosing what works best for my schedule as I am the President.
I think that you are not being reasonable by choosing Friday even though Thurs. works.
She does not seem to be engaged and listening to me.
We do not have enough time to attend a service event every Saturday in the month of November.
I'm going to be late to the movies with my friends. I really wish she would stop worrying so that I can leave to make it on time.
Thank you for listening Stephanie as I now feel stress free just from you listening to me.
What I hear you saying Mica, is that you are stressed about having meetings all on the same day and having service projects every weekend.
In this scene, I have shown a meeting that took place between two individuals by which one had the authority to decide when a organization meeting would take place. Upon witnessing this, I recognized some concepts that can be used to compare what can be applied to the conflict. Concepts used to guide non-violent conversation include exploring the issue through the lenses of observing, stating feelings and needs, and requests in order to communicate properly with each other and informatively.
In this scene I have illustrated the ways in which I witnessed at my 2nd meeting non-violent communication specifically concerning listening. Person 2 chose not to communicate at all or listen to me speak about about an issue concerning our organization. If compassionate listening had of been applied to this situation, I would not have thought that the person I was speaking with was ignoring me. The 2nd persons thoughts and body language indicate how they are not willing to "relieve the other person of their suffering." This concept is adapted from Thich Nhat Hanh as the way we should act out compassionate listening.
In this scene, I have illustrated how reflective listening can be used to let others know that you are listening to them and understand how they feel. Reflective listening can be used by practicing your listening skills in order to ensure that the other person is aware that you have understood them all while not implying, or suggesting a solution to their issue. In this instance I had come to the adviser of my organization to discuss issues I was having within the organization concerning time management.
