Day 3. Deferential Disagreement

Today, don’t argue with your person. Unless it is something life-or-business-altering, defer to them instead. Politely and positively let them know that although you disagree, you’re fine with doing it their way. (“Although my personal preference is to log the students’ science fair projects this other way, I know you’ve thought this through so let’s give your way a try.”)


Coach’s Corner: We are often negative without realizing it. What is your unrealized negativity pattern? Arguing? Exasperation? Or something else? See Chapter 6 in The Kindness Challenge for the seven different types of negativity.

‘A hot-tempered man stirs up strife, But the slow to anger calms a dispute. ‘ Proverbs 15:18
