Check out motivational speaker DeVon Franklins' intervention tips.
The key to a successful intervention is the breakthrough. The breakthrough is the moment when the person you're intervening with clearly sees the error of their ways (in a way they hadn't before) and is determined to make a positive change to correct the problem, which they have been resisting to correct before. Here are some helpful tips if you feel that a family member, friend or loved one needs an intervention.
Always Operate With Love
Successful interventions are always done with love and come from the heart. Never allow anger, frustration or irritation to drive the conversation. Love is the only force that can bring about the change you seek. The person must feel loved and cared for by you for the intervention to work.
