Dr. Stephen Rollnick, Motivational Interviewing Co-Founder
This week’s conversation is with Stephen Rollnick, the co-founder of Motivational Interviewing.
The Motivational Interviewing style, strategies and skills have been used to address a wide range of challenges, including those very tough conversations in which there seems little hope of making progress in helping people.
I doubt there’s many of us that enjoy having these difficult conversations, but what if there was a better approach to getting the outcome you wanted in these moments?
Stephen has found that when conversations about change go poorly, it’s because the more you try to insert information and advice into others, the more they tend to back off and resist.
Understanding optimal ways to communicate with one another is at the heart of this conversation
Motivational Interviewing can be used to enhance your ability to listen with skill in any situation, and to help people, young and old, to adapt and to develop their potential.
Its use has spread into health care, criminal justice, education and most recently into sport.
I hope it makes a difference for you.
