Thanks for writing this article, Muriel! It’s so true! I received very influential advice on exactly this topic while I was in college. I was working on a campus event, and one of the organizers told me, “there’s a subtle art to working with people. Sometimes it’s worth more to just say “okay” and move on rather than prove your point because you know you’re right. It takes far more strength to do so, but with practice it’ll become second nature and you’ll accomplish so much more.” It has become second nature and colleagues have commented that they’re impressed with my consistently calm yet effective demeanor.
