Sometimes Christmas Isn't So Merry!

I'm publishing this episode at a time of year when there are often family gatherings, and in today's polarized, politically correct culture, there can easily be anxiety about someone--you know, that person--bringing up a controversial subject and things devolving into an argument.

Whether it's gatherings with friends and family or difficult stakeholders, we need to get better at having productive disagreements. Our guest today, Buster Benson, suggests it's the most important meta-skill to develop. Buster is the author of the new book Why Are We Yelling? The Art of Productive Disagreement. I consider it a must-read book and look forward to sharing this discussion with you.
