Necessary Conflict?

Are your team meetings boring? Do you find your team avoiding controversial topics in order to “play nice”? Do changes only happen through backchannels?

If so, your team might have a fear of conflict. I’m not talking about personal attacks, mean-spirited comments, and the like. But if you want better ideas from your team, if you want greater engagement, if you want higher performance, a certain amount of constructive or productive conflict and disagreement is necessary.

Are you limiting your team’s potential by avoiding conflict?
