How to Win An Argument

If you are up against things and need to make your point clearly and carefully you need to consider the following steps to give you a framework to pin your desired outcomes around.

  1. See the event clearly: look at what is going on objectively and carefully and above all else try to remove any emotion from the situation as this will only get in the way of what you are trying to achieve.
  2. Know the outcome that you are looking for: really understand what it is that you are trying to achieve because once you recognise this your body language changes and your approach becomes sharper and more precise. This allows you to make better decisions.
  3. Manage your response: never respond with your gut reaction to an outcome as this is very likely to be irrational and full of negative emotions! Think carefully and logically – not easy but essential as the last thing that you want to do is make things worse or force a change in the outcome that you have gained.

Good Luck!
