Validating Your Partner

February 15, 2017

  1. Pay attention - put down your phone, make eye contact

  2. Respond with your face – nod once in a while, smile, look concerned

  3. Put aside judgments

  4. Reflect back what you heard and check to be sure you got it right

  5. Ask clarifying questions

  6. Acknowledge your partner’s experience – this does not mean you agree

  7. Treat your partner as an equal
