An Introduction to Crossovers

The Basics...

In this video Dr. Abigail Hirsch explores the concept of Crossovers with participants in a live Power of Two Workshop.

"Talk about yourself, ask about the other."

You will learn three key concepts:

Crossovers are when you tell your partner what you think he or she thinks, feels, or should do. Crossovers undermine communication.

Insight is one way to avoid using a Crossover. Insight is when you look inside yourself and describe your own thoughts, feelings or preferences.

Questions are the second way to avoid using a Crossover. Questions enable you to learn about your spouse. The best questions start with "how" or "what."
