Very empowering piece.

Agreeing to disagree and learning to disagree confidently are tough skills for some people to master. However I agree with this article in that it is absolutely necessary to learn how to do so--in both professional and personal settings.

Excellent topic. Thanks!

David, excellent article. I wrote a complimentary blog about it this morning: www.powerprojectinstitute.com/blog/ I disagree with you David only slightly and it has to do with your statement “Most people don’t want to be different.” I believe most people are screaming to be different, they just don’t want their difference to be held against them. Instead of fighting for their ideas and opinions to be heard, they fall in line like good soldiers and keep their thoughts and ideas to themselves. It’s not that they don’t want to be different, it’s just safer this way. Thanks for raising this issues, it continues even after all these years.
