How to “Wrestle a Pig”: Better Arguments with Unreasonable People

What’s It All About?

‘Never wrestle with a pig, you’ll just get dirty and they’ll enjoy it’ – or so the saying goes. But life is full of people who are unreasonable, uncooperative and sometimes plain wrong. If you can’t deal with them, then they win. This class will help to equip you with the skills to not only wrestle those times in your life without getting dirty, it will also help prevent you from accidentally being the pig yourself.

What Will We Cover?
