Making and keeping promises to your partner. Holding your partner accountable for his promises.
Partner 1: Make a promise to your partner, if you have not already done so in the previous exercise, Making and Accepting Requests. Make sure it meets each of the four criteria as stated in the Promises section of Chapter 11: Tools for Effective Communication.
