Eliz: Now it’s time for Gary’s Tips with Gary Engleton!
Gary: Hello, Elizabeth! Today I’ll be talking about expressing feelings.
In today’s Business Dialog, Rita uses expressions that show that she understands Mary’s feelings and her personal situation.
When she hears that Mary’s mother is sick, she shows sympathy with the expression “I’m sorry to hear that.”
Mary: Well, my mother used to take care of my son during the day.
But she got sick, and ...
Rita: Oh, I’m sorry to hear that.
Mary: Thank you. I think she’s going to be fine.
Rita: Oh, that’s good.
Gary: Notice how Rita shows that she understands Mary’s feelings by using the expression “I’m really sorry.”
Rita: Mary, I’m really sorry that you’re having these problems.
It must be very difficult for you.
Mary: Yes, it has been difficult.
Gary: And later she tells Mary not to worry.
She is sure that the other people will understand Mary’s situation.
Mary: I’m glad you think so, but I’m worried about what other people think.
Rita: Oh, don’t worry about that.
I’ll explain the situation to them.
I’m sure they’ll understand.
Gary: Understanding the personal feelings of others, and showing interest in their problems, is an important part of being a good manager.
