How to Disagree with Someone More Powerful: The Harvard Business Review Guide



Session 1

1. What are the characteristics of difficult people? What kinds of personalities are difficult to handle?

2. What causes people to be difficult? Are difficult people born or made?

3. How do you handle people who are hard to get along with? How to stop letting difficult people ruin your day?

4. Do you think that you are a difficult person at one point or another? What to do about it? Have you ever tried to change yourself to become a more easygoing person?


Session 2

1. Your senior/influential family member announces an investment that you find unrealistic. Your superior proposes a new initiative that you don’t know if it can work. Your senior colleague proposes an idea that you find risky. What can you do? Would you speak up your mind? Why?

2. Is it ok for your subordinates or junior family members to disagree with you? Do you believe that some level of disagreement is healthy? How to deal with someone who disagrees with everything you say?

3. According to the video, when and where to speak up your disagreement matter. Please share with us what’s the right time and environments to voice your dissent to more powerful people in a family and business?

4. Is it possible to disagree without arguing or even saying it? Share with us some successful examples.

Q1. What are the characteristics of difficult people? What kinds of personalities are difficult to handle?
--> Whatever to describe your spouse would probably be good answers for this question. :)

This is normally a topic I’d steer clear of because it makes me think of difficult people I’ve encountered at work or in other situations, especially those who are a current pain in the neck. Simply thinking of them or what they have done or said could arouse strong negative emotions. As a result, getting a nuisance out of the mind is the usual approach that I take to prevent them from ruining my day.

Q:Is it possible to disagree without arguing or even saying it?
Instead of arguing or explicitly saying it, suggesting an alternative or asking questions and tenderly guiding the direction of the conversation could be a better way to express your disagreement. However, sometimes, acknowledging that you and the other person have different viewpoints and agreeing to disagree might be the best way to go.
