Many a time, we have been in a situation where discussion ends up in intense arguments.
Lot of disagreement. Nevertheless, I would like to focus on certain points while discussing which helps us avoiding arguments.
When I was a developer, building web apps to Corporate Finance team, one thing I learned when making analysis or when I go for requirement gathering is to collect essential information.
All the finance guys look for is proper facts and figures.
So I suggest not just in corporate world but in day to day life routine work, if we have a good amount of reliable facts , It would help in justifying your views ,opinions
Now this is contextual thing. When you have facts, you have to understand in which context you will be using those facts, or in which context are you going to talk about those facts
Now the whole misconceptions can be avoided with a right interpretation of the matter being discussed or sentences being used.
Its always good to get acknowledgement from the other party that what you understood is in line with what they actually wanted to convey
So now, you got the interpretation right. However, the major challenge is what your approach is.
How are you going to present your views on that? What approaches do you take to take decisions which everyone can agree to.
Finally we all have different belief system. so it’s important to respect each other’s belief system.
This is what actually happened when we discussed about “my choice” video .
Things turned into argument. Because belief system differed and people expected only positive responses and any disagreement to it left the people offended.
Let’s not talk about that topic. But I leave you with the thought, how will you avoid disagreement turning into argument
