Communication Skills

How to Win an Argument

Still stewing about what you should have said the last time you lost an argument with a friend or stranger? Looking for that winning argument that will convince loved ones, colleagues, or clients to your side? How to Win an Argument will explain how to craft winning arguments, using techniques and tools – some of them over 2000 years in the making.

Along the way, you'll learn that arguments do not represent breakdowns in communication but are rather the primary tool humans use to persuade one another without coercion. Skilled arguments are also how we analyze and debate options and ideas that can't be fact-checked, like what will happen in the future.

So join me in How to Win an Argument where you will learn to become a skilled persuader, a better decision-maker, and a whole lot more.
