Type into Google “Let’s agree to disagree” in quotes and it will return some 121,000 results.
“Agree to disagree” or “agreeing to disagree” is a phrase in English referring to the resolution of a conflict whereby all parties tolerate but do not accept the opposing position. It generally occurs when all sides recognize that further conflict would be unnecessary, ineffective or otherwise undesirable.”Wikipedia
Now, type in “Let’s agree to object,” and five results will return, and they will all be mine.
Agreeing to object is the next step or supplemental that we can use without giving up on actually getting a resolution.
Objecting is what allows us to separate our behavior from the contents of the disagreement. That is, we may disagree with the content or context, but we object to the delivery. Tone, volume, mocking, mimicking, name-calling, dogmatic, browbeating, etc., etc.
Get an agreement with anyone and try it. You might be surprised how much further you can take an impasse, so-called. How we go about objecting is another matter. I have come up with a simple procedure called Object123. See below.
