Some people just push your buttons, but why?

Manipulators are masters at it, toxic people do it, and those with immature or dysfunctional communication styles both push your buttons and get defensive.

Have you ever thought about what is really going on when your mood instantly changes and someone drives you up a wall, rattles your cage or peeves you off?

We all get triggered, it’s part of the great landscape that is the tapestry of our lives. Sometimes we recognize it and sometimes we don’t.

As leaders, coworkers, friends or employees it’s important that we strive for healthy reactions, but as whole human beings sometimes, we fall short. Today we take a look at why people are triggered so that you can have the skills to respond effectively.

What you’ll hear on today’s episode:

  • What is a trigger
  • The four most common types of triggered reactions
  • The seed of truth
  • How this relates to communication
  • Dysfunctional and functional responses
  • Emotional triggered reactions (small t trigger)
  • The words you say, and those you don’t
  • What you are talking about and why its important
  • Where you are at and how that plays in
  • What to do about it
