Respectful Disagreement: What is it? Why does it matter? How do I do it (online)??
I feel this is a VERY pertinent subject, especially following election results and the election hangover we are all experiencing. People have different perspectives, that’s just a fact. So, if you disagree with someone – especially online, where negativity, lies, hate, and profanity spread quickly – it’s important to make sure that you are in RESPECTFUL disagreement with others.
How do you do that? Try these 5 simple actions on for size:
Keep in mind that we all have our own perspectives and opinions, and that respectful disagreement is possible…it starts with you.
Starting today, I challenge each of us to lead by example and respectfully disagree with others. It’s not just about keeping the peace. It’s about keeping sane, and continuing to grow and move forward together, as a country, as a world – because we are all in this together. Social media bridges so many gaps that separate us. We want to continue to use it as a bridge, and not burn it down.
Think before you speak, disagree respectfully, and make your online home an extended space for hospitality and growth.
