The Dextify Response …..


When you’re in the middle of a difficult conversation and you’re being challenged, it’s so easy to dextify, Defend, EXplain and jusTIFY!

Of course, there’s a time to defend, explain and justify.  But most often, dextifying is not the best response.  It almost always sounds like you’re making excuses and it just digs you into a deeper hole. 

So before you dextify, pause to consider a) if there is some truth to what the other person is saying, b) the most appropriate response.  Maybe give a little explanation or say, “Thank you. I’ll look into it.”

Until da next Tyme
