Definition: Disagreeing is a term used to express 2 or more people (or groups of people) differ in opinion. In other words: they have dissenting opinions.
Some tips to disagree with someone respectfully are:
1. Focus on the facts.
2. Don't get personal.
3. Recognize the good in what the other person is saying.
4. Remember to use active listening.
5. Use "I" sentences (I see where you're coming from, but…)
6. Know when to "agree to disagree" and move on.
