    Disagree Without Being Disagreeable

    Disagree Without Being Disagreeable

    When you disagree with another person's perspective, solution, or opinion, a very natural approach is to simply disagree. And, that approach rarely wins their heart and mind.

    Two Sides of the Need to Be Heard and Understood

    Two Sides of the Need to Be Heard and Understood

    It is important to remember that people need to be heard and understood and that the better we do that for others, the more likely they are to buy-in to what we are trying to achieve. We also need to beware of how our need to be heard and understood can become a challenge. This week, I’m looking at this other side – the leader’s side – of the need to be heard and understood.
