You may at times be in an interaction with someone who is authoritatively delivering a lengthy monologue about a trivial matter.

One field tested way to stop this monologue is to interject with:

“Let me stop you there.”

And then question the person or make a statement to gain/regain control of the conversation.

Own the Conversation

As always trial the “Let me stop you there'” technique first, in safe interactions and then reflect on its effectiveness.
