How you behave affects the way you treat your colleagues when you feel uncomfortable in a situation that puts you at a disadvantage compared to your fellow human beings. It is much better for you to stay calm, withhold your concerns and let others have their say. Appreciate that you can not enforce your professional success.
If you need to convince someone to change their mind today, you must do so in a personal conversation. If other people are around, there will be too much distraction. Make sure you submit your message personally. Sure, an e-mail or a phone call is much more convenient, but your words alone can not convey what you’re about to understand, and eye contact helps you make a stronger connection. Drive your meaning home.
No, it’s not a disaster if your partner does not agree with everything you say today. You should be glad that you have them to correct your opinions. They tend to value your own opinion somewhat overly and positively. No matter what, you like to prove yourself as efficient, potent, smart and sexy. It’s an understandable wish, but its execution can make you appear in knots. If you have smaller battles today, you will certainly be the cause.
