How to be a Man Whisperer, with Stacy Kaiser
Tip #1 = Tell him to do what he needs to do.
Payoff: he’s going to appreciate you respecting his wanting to do something and then will do something for you later.
What not to do: Don’t tell him he can’t have his space or tell him he can’t do what’s important to him.
Tip #2 = Tell him job well done.
Payoff: he’s going to continue.
What not to do: Nag and remind him how many times you’ve asked him to do something.
Tip #3 = Compliment him – even if he’ll never ask for it.
Payoff: He will feel good and be more complimentary towards you.
What not to do: don’t pick at him and tell him everything that’s wrong with him.
Tip #4 = Pick your battles – one thing at a time.
Only bring up something that is really an issue. If you can let an additional thing go don’t bring it up. Don’t declare all out war. No laundry bagging.
Payoff: you’ll avoid a fight and you won’t seem petty--you’ll seem logical.
