So a man was in the hospital and one afternoon a nurse came in with a specimen cup in her hand and asked him for a urine sample.
He raised his eyebrows in mock surprise and said “Do you mean from here?”
She ignored his humor and left the cup beside his bed. After she left, he decided to have some fun with her and filled the specimen cup with his leftover apple juice.
The nurse came back later, frowned at the cup and said “My, we are a bit cloudy today aren’t we?”
He grabbed the cup and drank it down completely. “I’ll run it through again and see if it comes out more clear next time.”

At one time or another, we’ve all had to maintain a conversation with someone who is defensive, a poor listener, or a discussion dominator.
1. What do you think is the most difficult aspect of dealing with an emotional communication situation in the workplace?
2. When faced with a particularly difficult communication situation, how do you handle it?
3. What communication situations seem to be the most difficult for you to handle?
Common Communication Nightmares include (see points 8 through 17 for answers):
4. You just don’t get it! (How do I get my message across to someone who just doesn’t get it?)
5. Is anybody listening? (How do I get someone to listen?)
6. Shut up and let me finish! (How do I confront someone who dominates or interrupts the conversation?)
7. What I really want to say is . . . (How do I communicate something the other party doesn’t want to hear?)
Eliminating Communication Nightmares:
8. Make up your mind to deal with the situation no matter how complicated or emotional it might be.
9. Make the commitment to stick with the challenge until your message is clearly understood.
10. Focus on the issues, not the person.
11. Explain your perspective, communicate how you see the situation.
12. Ask how the other person sees the situation; have them explain their perspective.
13. Get agreement.
14. Send a consistent message; use consistent body and verbal language.
15. Ask questions and listen in order to create a shared understanding of the problem; give and get feedback.
16. Use a communication style that matches the person you are working with.
17. Be candid and caring.
If you put a buzzard in a pen that is 6 feet by 8 feet and is entirely open at the top, the bird, in spite of its ability to fly, will be an absolute prisoner.
The reason is that a buzzard always begins a flight from the ground with a run of 10 to 12 feet. Without space to run, as is its habit, it will not even attempt to fly, but will remain a prisoner for life in a small jail with no top.
The ordinary bat that flies around at night, a remarkable nimble creature in the air, cannot take off from a level place.
If it is placed on the floor or flat ground, all it can do is shuffle about helplessly and, no doubt, painfully, until it reaches some slight elevation from which it can throw itself into the air.
Then, at once, it takes off like a flash
In many ways, we are like the buzzard and the bat. We struggle about with all our problems and frustrations, never realizing that all we have to do is look up
That’s the answer, the escape route and the solution to any problem….
just look up!
—Sorrow looks back,
Worry looks around,
But faith looks up!
speak kindly, and
trust in our Creator,
who loves us.
