Communication Hack for Connection & Influence | #shorts

What if there was a simple change you could make to communicate more collaboratively and with more influence, while also encouraging greater creativity?

There is!! You’ve got to try this!
It’s a super simple communication hack that has a HUGE impact on how others feel when they’re around you, and can have a massively positive impact on your relationships (both professional and personal!).

Here’s why:

The word ‘BUT’ becomes a form of psychological invalidation. It rejects, dismisses or minimises someone else’s thoughts or feelings.

“I’m so sorry you feel that way, BUT…”
“That’s a great idea, BUT…”
“You’re a great team member, BUT…”

Instead, swap it for another three-letter word, and trust me – you’ll notice the difference!
