If you show other people that you are listening to them, and that you understand them, they will be more willing to listen to you and accept your opinion. Don't just say "I disagree ", show them that you are listening and that you understand them before you explain your opinion.

People react to positive sounding words, even if they are used with a negative auxiliary.

Break down negative sentences with some softeners. 

This is aggressive and too direct. Try to avoid saying 'you' and put the focus on 'I' or 'we'.
