Transcript

  • 1. How To Stop an Argument
  • 2. Introduction
    • Arguments are part of life and we get into arguments everyday with relatives, friends, classmates, coworkers and sometimes even with strangers.
    • They often are trivial and useless.
  • 3. Argument - Definition
    • It is a dispute or a hard discussion.
    • Not a nice situation where two or more people disagree about a specific point of view.
  • 4. Important
    • But sometimes the focus of the dispute can be an avenue to professional and personal growth.
  • 5. Arguments - Reasons
    • Different point of view.
    • Competition for a position inside the company or politics.
    • Lack of education ( alienation ).
    • Short Sight.
    • Bad mood.
  • 6. The Best Way Out
    • The best way to win an argument is to avoid it.
    • Unfortunately, if you do, you could be perceived as a pushover who won't stand up for his beliefs.
  • 7. Arguments - Important
    • The key is to choose your arguments as a general would choose his battles.
    • Make sure you can win those battles you choose to enter. And make sure there is a substantial payoff if you do win.
  • 8. Ways to Stop an Argument
    • Never accuse a person of being wrong.
    • Admit your mistakes.
    • Be pleasant and polite.
    • Get your opponent saying yes. The objective is to have that person stop regarding you as the adversary.
  • 9. Ways to Stop an Argument
    • Let them talk. Concentrate on listening. People love to talk and they love to hear themselves talk.
    • Manipulate the conversation so that it seems whatever you wanted was their idea all along.
    • Keep an open mind.
  • 10. Ways to Stop an Argument
    • Sympathize with your opponent's desires.
    • Plea for righteousness. Nobody is ever against "Truth, justice and the Fairness."
