  • Both partners should agree on a topic and schedule a specific time and place to speak. 
  • If the topic is a problem solving exercise then ideally problems should be prioritised to remove points of contention. 
  • If the topic is of a more mundane nature then it should be designed to identify common interests. 
  • The dialogue should be balanced with no monopolisation of time by either partner. 
  • Both partners should take turns listening and speaking with any questions asked to clarify issues.
