Being persuasive in a political disagreement

by The 100 Companies

In today’s politically charged climate, it is sometimes difficult to have respectful dialogue on hot button issues. A recent report in Greater Good Magazine offers insight on heated communication.

The study shows that women and those with intellectual humility are the most convincing persuaders. Research speculates that women may be more strategic and thoughtful in expressing their position than men. The humility factor suggests that the arguer is open to the other’s beliefs, thus decreasing polarization.

To be effective, consider this when confronted with a provocative conversation: think before you speak and be open to the other’s point of view.
