Agree to disagree (141:365)

I believe it was our former President, Bill Clinton, who famously said, “We can agree to disagree, but let’s not be disagreeable.” I have always resonated with the quote because I firmly believe it is true. I use it often when I am dealing with staff, parents and even students.

 

The next time you are in an argument, or a heated discussion and it seems to be headed nowhere try to use the quote. 99 times out of 100, you can turn an argument around and stay process centered.
