This week as part of Mens Health Month I’m sharing easy ways to get people to talk.

 

Here’s the top ways I share, probably every week, with clients and organisations to help to get people to talk.  These are not exclusive for men, but they do work really well for men, women, children, spouse, partner, boss … anyone you like!

 

It’s so important to ensure the you have the right approach to get people to open up and feel safe to talk to you.  By saying the right approach, I’m not saying what you’ve been doing is wrong, per se, it’s just that there are better ways.  Keep listening and I’ll explain.

 

Whilst it might seem like there are awareness days, weeks and months for everything and you might get to the point where you feel saturated by all these times, it is important to recognise that they are here because they are needed.  It doesn’t mean you have to do everything. 

One in four of us will experience a mental health problem each year. For men in particular, it can be an awkward subject to talk about, for many people, man or women it can be heard, because of the stigma, but you don’t have to be an expert.

Listen for the different ways we can encourage conversations and get people to talk

 

Notice - it's about noticing the little clues, not necessarily the big ones.  Hear more about this.

 

Ask Twice - Asking twice gives someone the opportunity to get past the initial I'm Fine response.

 

Listen Carefully - this is listening to hear, rather than listening to fix things or provide solutions.

 

Question Gently - There are 3 key phrases that I use frequently in workshops and with clients every week.

 

I hope this is helpful.  Let me know if you use any of these tips and how you get on with them.
