This happened when some of my family members frustrated
me with demands and must respect their entitlement mentality to always support them. I
have used NVC to acknowledge their concerns and suppress tension and argument by
expressing my feelings, concerns, and my need for personal space and respect. I tried to
talk to them to express my feelings such as I understand that the pressure is on you,
however, I also need my personal space and the need to find a balance between meeting
family needs and fostering a good relationship with a family member(Rock, 2008). .

ability to have control over an event (Rock, 2008). I have always given my customers and
business client autonomy to make purchase decision including changes and return if they
feel that the offering does not meet what they need at that time. It is a way to ensure
cooperation and successful business transactions.
: The perception of fair exchange between people. As a leader, I have come to
realize that it is imperative to give my team equity and fairness in all ramifications to
prevent tension, disapproval, feelings of being cheated, double standards, and bias (Rock,
2008). I endeavoured to give equal opportunities to my team members and acknowledge
their good work with rewards. This model promoted recognition, effective
communication, increased probity, and transparency.

foster effective communication and relationships in individuals and teams. People become aware
of self-feelings and the need to respect and consider how others feel (social management) with
