Do you find yourself saying “yes, but…” a lot?
If you do then consider making a conscious decision to start using “yes and…” instead.
“Yes, but…” really isn’t a confirmation at all it’s just an attempt to be polite in your disagreement.
“Yes and…” is where you are really making a supporting statement and looking to build on what the other person said.
You can accomplish a LOT more with “yes and” then with “yes, but” and in the long run you will be happier doing so as well
Have a great day!
