1.Ask your coworkers’ to push back.
“How do you feel that went, and what could I have done differently?”

2.Read nonverbal cues. “Tell me how I should interpret your silence,” or “You suddenly seem to not want to look directly at me. I’m concerned something I’ve said isn’t sitting well. Can you help me understand if that’s true?

3.Monitor how you narrate the story and check if there are no assumptions. “ I assume it went wel because they did not ask any questions”.

4.Know your triggers and encourage others to call them out. “My buttons that get pushed when I feel stressed are… When you hear or see these, please make me aware. I know they are disfunctional and or annoying.”
