Meetings 4 Agreement And Disagreement

If this happens, we see two key dynamics. First, decisions are made, but they are not responsible. In meetings, it seems that decisions are being made and nothing is being done. The status quo reigns. Since it is not possible to move forward until everyone agrees and the partners recognize the need to make decisions, everyone agrees at the meeting. Or the discussion will never be “deep enough” to access the real topics. The “agreement” on the surface masks deeper reluctance and a lack of commitment.

Joel Garfinkle is the author of Getting Ahead: Three Steps to Take Your Career to the Next Level and one of today`s top executive coaches.

Take the initiative to do so when the disagreement becomes personal. That should not be the case.

While the process is important, it is equally important for each of the decision-makers to commit to not masking differences of opinion. Changing your mind to avoid conflict or maintain relationships rarely does that too. Identifying areas of convergence during the process can help to concentrate points of disagreement. Also remember that sometimes a chord (even if it`s not perfect) is often better than no deal at all. . .
