    • Listen. Everyone wants to be heard. Even if they are unreasonable, make them feel heard. Don’t think about what you are going to say next, just listen.
    • Stay Calm. focus on your breathing.
    • Don’t judge. You have no way of knowing what a person is going through, or what they have been through in the past. Many times when someone is unreasonable, it is because they are feeling fear, or even vulnerability.
    • No matter how a person is treating you, show them respect. Don’t show them your frustration or be negative. It won’t help the situation.
    • Try and figure out what the person needs, or what they are trying to avoid.
    • If they are upset, it is not a good idea to ask them to calm down. Rarely if ever does telling someone who is feeling emotional to calm down actually make them feel calmer.
    • Try saying tell me more so I can understand. If you just say “I understand”, it give the impression that you both don’t understand, and are not going to try.
    • Don’t smile. This can make a person feel as if they are being mocked or made fun of. Don’t crack jokes, as humor can sometimes make things worse in tense situations.
    • Don’t get defensive. When someone is upset, it is not about you. Try not to take it personally.
    • Sometimes it takes someone outside the team to help them work through the barriers to improve teamwork.
