Role-Playing Example

Leslie Yang & Connor Blacksher Role Play Scenario 2

A colleague keeps interrupting you when you’re speaking in a meeting. How might you give them feedback on how it makes you feel? What would change look like?

Example: You could provide feedback by saying something like "When you interrupt me while I'm speaking, it makes me feel like my ideas and opinions don't matter. I'd appreciate it if you held back and let me finish my thoughts before you comment. That way, everyone has a chance to contribute to the conversation."
