Let the other person save face - Deepstash

Let the other person save face

This chapter teaches how to avoid hurting the other person’s pride or dignity when you have to correct or criticize them. It argues that humiliating or embarrassing the other person will only make them resentful and hostile, and damage your relationship. It suggests using tact and diplomacy, and giving the other person a chance to explain or justify themselves. The chapter gives examples of how leaders like Confucius, Benjamin Franklin, and J. P. Morgan used this technique to deal with their opponents, rivals, and partners.
