Agreeing to disagree

This context statement alone is enough to change the course of a conversation from being an argument to one of mutual respect and understanding.

It reminds me of an exercise that we do in our training called “Point of view”. Note that it is not titled “My Point of View” since putting a my in it collapses the context of it being just a point of view that I might even change once I hear another point of view.

This context of agreeing to disagree bring along with it a context of compassion, empathy, respect and growth. It allow a space of listening intently and openness. There is no force or repression and a very good environment to foster trust and understanding.

Let us now be in our listening intently mode and marvel at what can come out of it.
