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.
