How to Win an Argument

Deflection, steamrolling, getting emotional, asking detailed and precise questions…career experts and Job Talk hosts Evan Forster and David Thomas have two wildly different methods for winning an argument. In this episode they pull back the curtain and go at it on camera, each determined to win an argument over what happened last weekend at a dinner party. Evan uses passion and brute force. David uses logic and questions. Which is the better method? Which method do you use? In the beginning, Evan and David describe their strategies. Then they use them on each other and dissect what works and doesn’t. Finally, they bring in Operations Manager Jose Ocampo and help him win an argument about respect he’s been having with his mother. It’s a roller-coaster ride in this episode, so fasten your seatbelt—and pick out which method works best for you.
