Tip 27: Disagreement is Not Bad!

  • First of all, encourage conflict. Give permission for people to debate and to share differing view points.
  • Focus on the issue, problem, task at hand, or decision.
  • Avoid personal attacks. Conflict shouldn’t be about personalities. It should be about the issue.
  • Agree on behaviors that are acceptable during conflict. Create norms that will guide team member behavior.
