Do You Know How to Debate?

#Debate is a skill we rarely teach– in school, in college, in corporate training. And yet it is a skill that is widely used in many personal and professional situations.

How will you get to a better or “the best” decision without debating all the possibilities?

Suggestion: In your next meeting purposefully pause before summarizing a discussion and making a decision, say, “Before we wrap this up, let’s debate it a bit more. What are the potential cons we are overlooking?”

You might be amazed at the perspectives you hear and the change(s) you make in your decisions.
