In our news section this week we are inspired by our heroine, Brenè Brown. We talk about why this stage of the pandemic is making people feel anxious, how that might be affecting our mood and what we can do to get through it. We share how we are feeling and what we are doing to help us move forwards.
Our big topic this week is all about the art of productive disagreement.
Do you walk away from conversations that seem like they may become argumentative, rather than trying to come up with a solution?
How can you enter into a debate and keep an open mind, so you can reach the best outcome? What would be the benefits if we could encourage others into a constructive debate, even in a culture where there’s a strict hierarchy?
We talk over situations where we’ve experienced productive disagreement and share our top tips for having better conversations and debates.
Throughout the conversation we refer to the following books, articles, podcasts and reports:
