Our Skills & Concepts
Indirect Openers are ways to start or open a conversation in an indirect way. We use these in times when being direct would be offensive or harsh, such as correcting or disagreeing with someone. To use an Indirect Opener, we can turn our statements into questions or preface our sentences with, "I'm not sure, but it seems..." That way our message sounds more gentle.
