Rule #5 – Embrace Healthy Conflict

In this episode we discuss: 

  • Why healthy conflict and the ability to surface and resolve disagreements is crucial to being a disruptive leader.
  • The importance of honest feedback in creating understanding and building strong relationships.
  • How to overcome the awkwardness of giving feedback by setting the stage properly.
  • Rather than avoid conflict or confrontations, approach them with the belief that everyone has the best intentions. 
  • How to maintain healthy relationships while fostering disagree.
  • What happens if there isn’t open and transparent ways to deal with differences of opinion and approaches. 
  • The power of the principle “disagree and commit”.
  • Rather than weaken relationships, disagreements done right strengthen and deepen relationships.
