You can create unity and alliance and lessen defensiveness when you use "let's" in place of "you," even when that individual, not you, is really going to be the one carrying the duty out.
Often in day-to-day living we find ourselves in circumstances where we need to direct, delegate, or even order. Usually our assignments are just short sentences, such as "Can you please do this or that?" You can create unity and alliance and lessen defensiveness when you use "let's" in place of "you," even when that individual, not you, is really going to be the one carrying the duty out. For example, "Let's be sure and get this out in the mail today, okay?" It's such a simple thing, yet you will find it works wonders. Make a habit of using the word "let's," and you will find more cooperation.
No one wants to feel as though they are being used or unappreciated. By using a "we" approach, your employees, partners and co-workers will feel involved and appreciated. Be sure that you don't say "we" and then abandon the person from whom you made the request. You must do your part in the project and carry some weight. Further, by involving those with whom you work, you will notice an increase in the quality of work and the attitude with which it is done.
