We view the world through our own unique perspective so we will all encounter times when we don’t agree with someone else’s opinion. In order to have productive conversations, it’s important to listen respectfully to the other person and never dismiss them or their contributions. Use phrases such as ÒIn my opinion…Ó or ÒBased on what I’ve read…Ó or ÒAccording to my experience…Ó to demonstrate that this is your personal point of view. You can also try phrases such as ÒI see your point of viewÓ or ÒI’ve never thought of it that way.Ó You can stay true to your perspective but always remain respectful to someone else’s. This will keep conversations open, allowing you the opportunity to learn and grow.
