11 Tips for Discussing Problems with Others

How to discuss problems with others?

1. Discussing a problem without a goal is a meaningless discussion. Before starting the discussion, declare the goal first. The standard sentence is as follows: I want to achieve/solve/complete a goal, but what specific obstacle do I have, so let’s discuss this problem together!

2. Show your enthusiasm for the issue and infect the other person to join the discussion instead of asking them to join the discussion.

3. If you don’t have a clear goal in mind, then bring up “I don’t have a clear goal in mind” as the first issue that must be discussed.

4. Don’t start by rambling on about your ideas, because the other party is likely to be a master and doesn’t need your foreshadowing and information at all. Start the question directly and end it with “I’d especially like to hear your suggestions”, asking for feedback first, and if he needs more information, he’ll ask you.

5. Take notes as you go, such as drawing a simple mind map or memorizing keywords. Because in the discussion, everyone’s speech and ideas are not structured and precise, they are all random and fleeting. That’s when the handy notes come into play, ensuring that every brilliant idea is remembered. For complex discussions, recordings can be made.

6. To be good at motivating others. Focused eyes and serious records are also a kind of motivation. An advanced play is to use the universal sentence pattern: Can you expand on the details?

7. During the discussion if there is disagreement and you are embarrassed to oppose others directly, you can say: I did not understand, please repeat it. You will find that most people will come up with a better idea than the previous one.

8. If you don’t understand something during the discussion, you can honestly say you didn’t understand it.

9. If there are different opinions during the discussion, express your own opinions directly on the matter, but never judge the motives of others.

10. The discussion should have a conclusion, that is, the person who initiated the discussion has an obligation to summarize, what is the outcome of our discussion, and is it a consensus? Or an action plan?

11. The best way to show someone your appreciation is to tell them what you got out of it. Don’t generalize, but have details. The standard sentence is a detail or information the other person told you + what inspired you + what action will result from it.
