Confrontation brings up fear and, at times, provides a severe lack of clarity around what we truly want. Identify the distinction between the confrontation being about you or another person. If it’s about another person, bring neutrality, gather information around the problem and solution and deliver it in a way that doesn’t exacerbate the problem. If it’s about you, the fear or lack of clarity is likely about some need not being met or may be in danger of not being met. Clarity comes from seeing past what has yet to transpire and envisioning possibilities other than our worst fears.
