Sound decisions, healthy team dynamics, and resilient personal and professional relationships don’t require or even particularly benefit from an absence of conflict. When there’s conflict and tension, the goal isn’t to abolish it, but to navigate it in ways that prevent damage and inspire deeper consideration of solutions. The goal is to disagree better.
What does it mean to disagree better?
Healthy, resilient and fulfilling personal and professional relationships have conflict — sometimes a lot of it. How you navigate the conflict and what you do to nourish the relationship in general matter at least as much as, and perhaps more than, the amount or degree of conflict.
