Just Come Out with it, Don’t Beat Around the Bush

One fast way to make an uncomfortable conversation even more uncomfortable is to dance around the subject. Both of you in the conversation know why you’re there and what you’re supposed to be talking about it.

Hemming and hawing and dancing around what you want is only going to make things awkward. Both of you will be sitting there dreading the moment when things become serious. So, just like with removing Band Aids in one quick pull, dive into the meat of your conversation as soon a politeness allows. Paradoxically, you’ll actually feel yourself relax the moment you utter the words “I’d like to raise my rates.” And your client (or boss) will, too.
