Throw out Your Strong Opinions (Just for a Bit!)

Different perspectives bring fresh ideas and contribute to the overall success of a meeting. But if you hold too tightly to your opinions and personal reality from the start, you might miss the chance to build on others’ ideas.

Loosen your grip on your opinions for the sake of productivity! Hearing someone out doesn’t mean you agree with them. But it might open the floor to new ideas.
