Benjamin Franklin's Advice for Thinking Well with Others

This online lesson discusses the advice that Franklin gives for thinking well with others. This advice is quite commonsensical, including counsel such as "Listen well" and "Try to find something right in what someone says before you disagree," but the points are certainly worth repeating. 

The lesson includes a presentation, the script and slides from the presentation, a salesman training video from 1938, excerpts from Franklin's Autobiography, and the complete text of the Autobiography.
