23. Tell me about a time when it was better to be agreeable in a situation rather than continue the arguement.
Top Answer
It is better to be agreeable when you realize that everyone is different and people hold different views. Especially with a customer its important to keep your cool because arguing will probably escalate the situation.
Second Best
One of the attorneys for which I worked was very detail oriented and diligent about her work. Often, it was better to take careful note of her feedback and go back and review the details rather than argue on the spot about the specifics. She was transitioning into a new area of expertise and was simply being thorough in her work; on the spot argumentativeness would not have advanced the situation.
3.
At Kitchen
4.
When the argument ceases to build towards a solution to a problem and only creates a hostile environment in the work place.

It is better to be agreeable in a situation than continue arguement when one realizes that both parties have and are entitled to their own seperate opinions.

When a students' mother wanted the child to move up a dance level and I knew she wasn't ready. I tried explaining that I know they need to stay in this level, but eventually had to move them up because the mother was so sure.
7.
I would prefer a team because i can help others do their job.
8.
When it's for the benifit of deescalating a situation with and maintain professionalism and for the benifit of a customer
9.
Again, im very easy going, so im generally agreeable. but a time i had to let my guard down was when a customer ate a taco almost fully and then later complained that it was too spicy and that they wanted something different free of charge. i tried to get them to see my point.. and i tried to see theirs, but in the end we couldnt compromise so i just got my mangager.
10.
Well I have a ten year old brother and half the time if I don't go along with what he says he will keep arguing with you until you finally just say ok you're right and i'm wrong. So it way better just to go along with with what he has to say.
