How do you handle a coward that is afraid to communicate?

A common problem that way too many face comes down to handling someone that is acting like or showcasing the traits of a coward in their lack of communication or avoidance you. So something went wrong, really wrong and you are looking for answers, but they are looking to hide. This can cause a great deal of friction and make the situation worse if not handled appropriately.

How do you handle a coward that is afraid to communicate? Gently.

I had a situation that went downhill very fast with a person that owed me a very large sum of money for serviced completed. I explained to them that all I wanted right in that moment was communication in how the situation would resolve and the steps that were being taken to resolve it. I understand things go wrong and with clients or anyone, when things go bad, I am never looking for instant fixes, just communication to keep that respect and professionalism there.

This person all but disappeared and when asked for communication and asked repeatedly if they will honor their agreements in time, they have gone silent.

Now I have all the right to go on the attack. I could go full force and showcase these actions and the cowardly acts, but to go on the aggressive is only going to shut this person down more. My plan was to lay back and hope they find the honor in themselves first to reconnect and repair what went wrong. I was being gentle and giving them time. In that, I am hoped they recognized my actions and would chose to do the right thing.
27 - there is no better way to find out the true heart, loren weisman, weis words

How do you handle a coward that is afraid to communicate and the problem continues?

For me and my situation, I gave it a deadline. Played a bit of a waiting game but also getting my ducks in a row so that if an action has to be taken, there is a clear trail of all I did to try to resolve things respectfully and patiently first.

In the end and a quote from my Weis Word Quotes, “there is no better way to find out the true heart, honor, and professionalism of a person, than seeing how they handle themselves and others when facing a crisis, disaster or intense level of pressure.”

Sometimes it is hard to spot a coward when everything is going perfect and how unfortunate is it to find out the truth of someone when everything falls apart.

In the end, and before looking into action, I weighed out the time, the cost and the efforts it would take to remedy things. It was not worth it and I closed the door. While it sucked, and in the end, I got taken. With all calculations, it was the better way to go.

To go on a deserved rant and attack is one answer to how do you handle a coward and…

while it might feel good, could have only set up negative perceptions for my reputation and my business. Someone considering my services might see me in a way I do not want and since they do not understand the full story, it only leaves them with a negative perception.

This is why I chose gentle.

And taking the time to calculate if it is really worth the effort to go after some one, even if you are in the right and you are due… if its never going to resolve, and can only hurt appearances, and future connections, then sometimes, even if only strategically and for perception…

leave it be and let karma play its part.
