A post on LinkedIn caused some debate, with no clear conclusion. Each of the two debaters closed their (well articulated) arguments with one of the following statements:
“I appreciate this input and I can see it from your perspective.”
“Alternate views are useful as long as put forward respectfully which I hope you found mine to be.”
“I was delighted that you took the time and expressed your opinion. Please continue sharing. I bet you made the conversation richer by doing that. Thank you.”
What a kind way to discuss. And what a great example that online interactions can be respectful. Thank you!
Thanks to Owain and Ali, who didn’t know before I saw their debate.
