1. Drop the Ego:

1. Drop the Ego Meeting and conversing with your wife should not be an opportunity yet again to feed your starving ego. Whatever cravings you have for attention and narcissistic behaviors, leave it for your staff, your colleagues or your boss to provide at the workplace. Copyright © 2013 “Instigate this !”

2. Quit playing “the advancing myself” game:

2. Quit playing “the advancing myself” game There is no need to put on a show and choose your word carefully. The goal is not for you to advance yourself or get perks as a result of the conversation. Bring respect and honesty with every word you speak… Copyright © 2013 “Instigate this !”

3. Listen more talk less:

3 . Listen more talk less The majority of people hear others but don’t listen to them. The voice in their heads is usually louder than the voice they hear and that is why, most people already formulate a rebuttal to a statement well in advanced of it being completed.

4. There is no need for a problem solver, a husband will suffice.:

4. There is no need for a problem solver, a husband will suffice. You have not been invited to solve a problem or provide instant solutions. Silence the Sherlock Holmes within you and be ready to lend a shoulder for the comfort of your wife. Copyright © 2013 “Instigate this !”

5.You are not the smartest person in the room.:

5 .You are not the smartest person in the room. The corporate world mandates that we should always display and reaffirm our value in every meeting we attend. No two experiences are the same and the notion of “smarter” in itself is flawed. Regardless of your spouse being a housewife or a CEO, you should approach the conversation with the intention of learning rather than the intention of teaching… Copyright © 2013 “Instigate this !”

6. No need for flowcharts, whiteboards or PowerPoint. No notes needed, only attention and hugs:

6. No need for flowcharts, whiteboards or PowerPoint. No notes needed, only attention and hugs Forget all about flowcharts and let’s not whiteboard it. Your attempt at clarity and organization will be your doom. Just let the conversation be… Copyright © 2013 “Instigate this !”

7. There is no need for an agenda. A conversation from the heart and soul needs no scripts:

7. There is no need for an agenda. A conversation from the heart and soul needs no scripts For all those husbands who are control freaks and type A personalities, please take a deep breath. The absence of an agenda will probably traumatize you for a good while. Use a brown bag for hyperventilation and suck it up. Eventually, you will come to find out to your utmost disbelief that great things can still be achieved without an agenda. Copyright © 2013 “Instigate this !”

8. Whatever you do, do not pick up that phone or check your e-mails while being talked to.:

8. Whatever you do, do not pick up that phone or check your e-mails while being talked to. Using your phone or checking e-mails while someone is talking , is simply rude. Nonetheless it has now become an accepted behavior in the corporate world under the false belief of our ability to multi task. Whatever the case might be, leave this behavior for the workplace where being rude is accepted and encouraged. Your wife deserve 100% of your attention. Copyright © 2013 “Instigate this !”

10.There is no other meeting that you are late for. Take the time to embrace a complete conversation.:

10.There is no other meeting that you are late for. Take the time to embrace a complete conversation. Allow for plenty of extra time for your wife to express herself. Do not plan on a quick exit. The conversation will be over when she is satisfied that she has fully expressed herself and that you have understood her. Copyright © 2013 “Instigate this !”

11. Just because the conversation did not start on the scheduled time, does not mean it lost its value.:

11. Just because the conversation did not start on the scheduled time, does not mean it lost its value. We all know that women take some liberties with time and schedules. You may call it a right, a privilege or anything else. Keep that brown bag handy for hyperventilation needs and exercise patience. Just because the schedule has been altered, it does not mean the conversation will be without value. Copyright © 2013 “Instigate this !”

12. Do not assign action items and mandate deadlines.:

12. Do not assign action items and mandate deadlines. Be comfortable with the fact that all there was to accomplish, was done throughout the conversation. Use your brown bag for the last time and smile. While you might have stepped out of your comfort zone, you also brought great joy to your wife. Copyright © 2013 “Instigate this !”
