How to disagree with something said in a meeting, and when to claim accident at work compensation
If you are new to the company, or feel that you have a fairly disposable role in the company, you may find it difficult to voice your opinion in a meeting, or feel that you always have to agree with what is said by management so that you don’t risk your job or reputation in your workplace.
However, if you have been asked to come into a meeting then there is a pretty good chance your managers want to know your actual opinion, and keeping quiet can help them to make mistakes that they brought you in to prevent. Here are some ways you can make your opinion heard without being rude or upsetting anyone.
- Make sure that you understood. There can be nothing more embarrassing than disagreeing with a point and then finding out that you were mistaken. Not only this, but you will also waste a lot of time by trying to disagree with something if you have the wrong end of the stick, so you should ask before you disagree.
- Formulate a good argument. Don’t just disagree with what has been said, but actually try to make a point of coming up with a different solution, or something else which can be used instead of the point that has been made.
- Wait your turn. Never interrupt someone else’s point to make your own point. You should always listen to everything that they have to say before you disagree, on the off-chance that what you have heard so far isn’t a finished thought, and might come back around to something that you do agree with.
- Be polite. Just because you are disagreeing doesn’t give you the right to be anything but professional when you make your points. Be polite and mature, and this way you are more likely to be listened to as well.
