Disagreeing with Someone Senior to You

Your boss is excited about a new initiative that you think is doomed to fail. Your senior colleague proposes a project timeline you worry is unrealistic. It’s tempting to just agree or go along with that person. After all, that can be easier than speaking up. But that’s not always the best approach. How do you decide when it’s worth saying something? And if you do speak up, what should you say? In this course, workplace expert Amy Gallo shows you how to assess if voicing your disagreement with someone who has more power than you is the right course of action (it often is!), and then how to do it in ways most likely to give you the best results. She also covers how to lay the groundwork in some of your most critical relationships, so that disagreeing is easier to do, despite the power dynamic.
