This is second blog post in the 4 part C.O.R.E. series.

Sometimes it’s very obvious what the goal or anticipated outcome of a conversation is. If we are talking about pizza, burgers, or Asian for dinner, the goal is to eat some food!

In some conversations though, the desired outcome is more vague. If you know that your sister says upfront “I just need to vent for a minute!” Then the expectation is clear. She’s not looking for solutions, she just wants to speak her mind.

Without an outcome in mind, however, it can lead to ambiguity and a feelings of disappointment that needs weren’t met.

Knowing what the goal is can help direct the conversation in a way that leaves both people feeling positive about the outcome.

And if the outcome missed? That’s another blog post…
