Have a discussion (listen) to understand both sides of the problem and try to resolve

    Hitch The film, Hitch, is one of my favorites. The communication in the film was always through someone else.

Making the conversation more effective with the other person would have been easier than someone telling the other person what to say. Interpersonal conflict…
