Die Kunst des respektvollen Umgangs bei Meinungsverschiedenheiten

Das Interview mit Roger Nicole (siehe dieser Post) hat’s in sich. Zum Schluss wird er auf seine Art mit ‎Meinungsverschiedenheiten umzugehen angesprochen. Für Nicole gibt es drei Schlüsselfragen:‎ ‎

  1. “What do I owe?”‎ I owe them to seek to understand what makes them tick and why they express themselves as they do. Also, I owe them to go back as much as I can to a place where we can agree, so as to see whether we can form an agreement so that you limit disagreement as much as you can. In that way you become not an enemy but a friend who guides them.‎
  2. ‎“What can I learn from them?”‎ I can … learn that I’m not expressing myself well, so that they don’t understand what I’m trying to say. …Then I can learn that in order to reach people, I have to find other ways of ‎approaching them than what I’ve done so far.‎
  3. ‎“How can I cope with them?”‎ ‎… Sometimes I intentionally don’t mention a certain objection. I know it is coming, so on purpose I don’t mention it. I let them do it because I know I can overcome it.‎
