Thanks for asking Charlotte and the chance for me to share my needs.
The 6 rules of engagement I propose we try are 6 words beginning with A.
That we both try to speak with Adjustable, Accountable and ultimately Acceptable language.
That if we fail to achieve this, we notify the other with Appreciation, Acknowledgment and Apology (speech in defense).
Two caveats are for any new agreements we start with "From now on…" and we can end a conversation at any time with a DFM or Direct Feedback Moment.
That is it Charlotte my framework that has taken 25 years to assemble. If you are willing to agree to try them with me, I think it becomes self apparent after using them.
