Leadership: How to leave with dignity

Two people having a meeting
Control your meeting, and leave with dignity.
  • I am finding your behaviour inappropriate.
  • Are you aware your behaviour is coming across as aggressive?
  • I feel we need to take a pause in this meeting.
  • I would like a moment to reflect on what has been discussed so far.
  • I am not comfortable continuing this meeting and would like to stop and reconvene tomorrow.
  • This meeting has become unfocused and we should arrange to continue the discussion at another time.
  • I refuse to be spoken to like this.
  • We will continue this meeting after we have had time to reflect.
