Describe two stratergies that you could use to clarify misunderstandings.

NOTE: Please be aware that the information on this page is a very rough draft and has not been fact-checked so should be used accordingly (taken with a pinch of salt)! However, it should (hopefully) give you some pointers and set you off in the right direction.

A misunderstanding can be clarified by actively listening to what an individual is saying and then verifying their main points. This is done by repeating it back to them in your own words and asking if what you have said is correct.

Another method that can be employed is to ask somebody else to mediate. They may be able to better understand the individual as well as explain it to you in a different way.
