Don’t avoid disagreements – Just do it right. HBR guide on how to tackle differences at work, the right way

Disagreements at work rarely run smoothly, but a successfully fought for idea that leaves your relationships intact can be the just what your career needs to take off. This article contains expert tips, an action plan, dos and don’ts and case studies to empower you to feel confident approaching a disagreement.

I really liked this article because it goes beyond common instructions (that we all know anyway) like “Prepare”. It explains the three key differences you are likely to have with co-workers (substantive, relational and perceptual) and guides your preparation along the appropriate lines. It wont help to tackle a relational issue with just stats, and it won’t help substantive disagreements to introduce personal arguments.

I also recommend this sphinxx guest blog by Ken Wright, award winning author and business man on how to develop your EQ, because this will help with any kind of disagreement you have.

Have you had a disagreement that you resolved well? Or perhaps went very badly? Please share your experience with the sphinxx network in the comments section below.

Check this out, I'm in awe. My friend Ronni Kahn is at it again, disrupting the food supply chain, offering food security to the vulnerable. I've shared before about OzHarvest. When I first met Ronni ten years ago I knew she was special, but what she has achieved and continues to achieve truly blows my mind. She cares so much about the people that OzHarvest serves, and every person in her life, and gives her everything to make sure that no person needs to go hungry. The international expansion of OzHarvest is awesome, and this "take what you need" supermarket in Sydney is just brilliance. Repurposing and rehoming surplus food, keeping it out of landfill so that we all benefit and business overheads are lowered. Win. Win. Win. Love it! ... See MoreSee Less
