The Best Way to Win an Argument

 

"The only way to get

the best of an argument

is to avoid it."

Dale Carnegie, author

  

As I see it. . . . . . . .

The best way to win an argument; is not to be involved in one.  

When you lose an argument; you lose.

When you win an argument; you lose.  

In either case you lose.

If you attempt to convince someone against their will, they will remain unconvinced and you will damage your relationship. 

When faced with disagreement hear the other person out and understand their point of view.  

Establish the area's of the disagreement and seek a common ground for solutions and agreement.  

Form a basis of common trust and cooperation.  

Thank the other person for their input and their interest in finding a resolution.

Get the consciences on the areas of agreement and take the steps for resolution on the areas of disagreement. 

Be seen as facilitator not an opponent.
