Think about the last argument you got into.
Did you win?
Did you lose?
Did it matter?
Did you get angry and did it end uncomfortably?
How did it make you feel and how did it make the other person feel?
If you won the argument, how much did you really gain, and how much did you actually lose?
We humans rarely agree. We argue and debate and nothing ever seem to be resolved.
Trying to win an argument usually comes across as belittling the other person in a manner beyond the specifics of the argument itself. The conflict ceases to be about the matter at hand and becomes all about negating the other person.
The argument is experienced as a struggle for our integrity, self-respect, and the respect of others. Our entire self-image becomes dependent upon winning the argument.
Wouldn’t it be nice if you could cut through the clutter and create consensus for your ideas and proposals? Of course, it would. But to get there, you have to stop arguing and start asking questions.
In this CPE webinar Author and Humanist Jennifer Hancock will discuss recent research on the following topics:
