My guest today is Buster Benson. In addition to having a fancy alliterative name, he has written an extraordinary book, called "Why are We Yelling? The Art of Productive Disagreement.
You can find it on his website.
How good is this book?
Here's what former guest Seth Godin has to say about it:
"This is a life-changing book. Read it three times and then give a copy to anyone you care about. It will make things better."
Regular listeners know the weight that endorsement carries.
In our conversation Buster shares questions you can use today to improve the quality of your disagreements while reducing the stress that comes with arguments. We discuss the difference between being polite showing someone that you care about them while disagreeing, and much more.
Before I go, two announcements:
1. I have a new, grown up email address. Try it out: Email me at my new address! (Joe at onepercentbetterproject dot com)
2. I have been lucky to associate with great people. When I began this project, I had no idea where it would lead. One place I am ecstatic that it led is here: YouthBaseballSchool A one-stop shop for baseball instruction. I accepted an invitation to be a contributor, and I couldn't be more excited. Please share that affiliate link with the baseball fan in your life.
I cannot thank you enough for all the support!
As always, thanks for listening!
