Slide 1: Strategies to Win Tough Discussions The Right Way to Fight
Slide 2: Introduction • Differences of opinion at work are inevitable and often integral to innovation, problem-solving, and performance improvement. • But knowing that most clashes have benefits does not make them any easier to manage.
Slide 3: Disagreements • Disagreements with coworkers can be uncomfortable, and if handled poorly, result in unproductive and even harmful conflict. • The good news is that, with a little planning, you can avoid a fight and find an answer that everyone agrees on.
Slide 4: Disagreements • Because most people are uncomfortable discussing differences, it's rare that disagreements go smoothly and most conflicts are resolved through brute force or splitting the difference. • Unfortunately, this approach often means both sides are unhappy with the outcome.
Slide 5: What the Experts Say • Having a productive disagreement starts with your mindset. • It is important that you assume you have something to learn, assume there is a more creative solution than you've thought of. • By entering the discussion with an open mind, regardless of your coworker's stance, you are likely to find common ground.
Slide 6: Strategies to Win Tough Discussions • Be Prepared: – Being prepared for a dispute requires knowing your own position and trying to better understand your coworker's. – Before approaching your colleague, you must know what your underlying intentions are.
Slide 7: Strategies to Win Tough Discussions • We can point out three types of differences between coworkers: – Substantive, in which you disagree over the content or task at hand. – Relational, when the dissent is really about your relationship with your coworker. – Perceptual, when you and your coworker are seeing the problem differently.
Slide 8: Strategies to Win Tough Discussions • Learn to Approach the Situation: – Acknowledge the type of disagreement you are having and check with your coworker that he sees it the same way. – Regardless of the nature of the quarrel, try to leave your emotions at the door.
Slide 9: Strategies to Win Tough Discussions • Set up a suitable place: – Preparation also includes careful consideration of logistics. – Schedule your meeting so you will have enough time to reach a conclusion. – Be sure the conversation can happen face to face in a private setting. – Don't try to solve differences using email, which does not do a good job of conveying tone or nuance.
Slide 10: Strategies to Win Tough Discussions • Identify common ground: – To start a difficult conversation the right way, it's important for you and your coworker to identify something you agree on. – This may be a common goal or a set of operating rules that you consent to. – Be sure that the common ground is something your colleague genuinely cares about, and not something you think he should.
Slide 11: Strategies to Win Tough Discussions • Hear your coworker out: – Even if you think you already understand your coworker's perspective, you should hear what she has to say. – Ask questions that help you fully understand her point of view and determine whether your disagreement is a function of differing interests or differing perceptions.
Slide 12: Strategies to Win Tough Discussions • Propose a resolution: – When all of the data is on the table, offer a resolution. – Don't propose what you walked in the door with, but use the information you gathered during your conversation to come up with a better solution.
Slide 13: Strategies to Win Tough Discussions • When it goes badly: – If your exchange becomes heated, bring the conversation back to your shared interests or goals. – Re-focus the dialogue on the future. – If your coworker is antagonistic or aggressive, it may be best to take a break from the conservation. – You can either literally step out of the room or pause mentally pause to observe the course of the conversation.
Slide 14: Principles to Remember • Do: – Focus on shared goals and interests. – Understand the nature of your disagreement before meeting with your coworker. – Remain open to persuasion • Don't: – Assume you fully understand your colleague's perspective. – Try to solve a disagreement over email. – Stop your coworker from venting his frustrations.
