Why Should Attend
Disagreement is hard but necessary. Things don’t change or improve unless we express our differences and arrive at solutions. Unfortunately, many people do not have the skills to do this effectively. Either they don’t speak up and make their opinions known, or they push their point of view so hard that they offend the other person and the discussion escalates into a battle of wills or a clash of personalities.
