Many of us may be asking ourselves how, when people disagree with or discount us, we can persuade them to rethink their positions.
By Adam Grant, Harvard Business Review
The legend of Steve Jobs is that he transformed our lives with the strength of his convictions. The key to his greatness, the story goes, was his ability to bend the world to his vision. The reality is that much of Apple’s success came from his team’s pushing him to rethink his positions. If Jobs hadn’t surrounded himself with people who knew how to change his mind, he might not have changed the world.
