Imagine that you are in a classroom or a meeting. The teacher or the meeting leader says something incorrect. In your opinion, which of the following is the best thing to do? — Interrupt and correct the mistake right away. — Wait until the class or meeting is over and the people are gone, and then talk to the teacher or meeting leader. — Say nothing. Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.
Our behaviors in a formal meeting are critical not only for ourselves but also for others. Some possess this conviction that if the meeting leaders falsely say something, we would not say anything, at least until the end of the meeting. However, I am afraid I have to disagree with this statement. The first noteworthy point regarding the issue is the purpose of a meeting or class. This is crucial for us to have access to group members' opinions at the moment because instant reaction declares a lot of things about the person, his idea, and character, which is so important for the meeting leaders to decide how to arrange the continuation of the meeting. Therefore when the meeting leaders say something incorrectly, we should mention the problem. Sometimes, we misunderstand something, and it could help us to resolve our confusion. It may also be helpful for the meeting leaders either. They could find if they are talking confusing. Secondly, talking straightly in a meeting could make a safe and clean environment for other members. As you disambiguate meeting leaders false, you may be solved their problems. In this situation, they may reveal our ideas without shame and fear. This is fruitful for the meeting as a whole. Ten years ago, I was a student at the college. I had a teacher who seemed moody. No one has enough courage to talk in his class. Someday, one of my friends, Alice, said quietly: "It is not legible." " Finally, you talked to me," the teacher said. He inquired why we were too silent in class. We answer one by one. Finally, we realized that he thought we were just not interested in his class. After that, everything changed. We talked easily without any fear, and the teacher did not seem moody. A little disclosure greatly improved the quality of the class, and this was better for Alice, us, and even the teacher. In conclusion, I highly recommend that we should interrupt the meeting leaders as much as we need because it makes the situation more uncomplicated and understandable for everyone.
