Buster Benson joins The Mountain Life. Buster is an entrepreneur and a former product leader at Amazon and Twitter. He's editor of Better Humans publication on Medium and the author of the Cognitive Bias cheat sheet with over one million reads. He joins to talk about his new book, Why Are We Yelling? The Art Of Productive Disagreement. This book is for anyone who is frustrated with the state of argument in the world. He helps us understand how arguments work and why, and after reading his book, you’ll be able to: remain confident when you’re put on the spot, diffuse tense moments with a few strategic questions, facilitate creative solutions even when your team has radically different perspectives, and get through to the most stubborn people by understanding their motivations.
