Having positive disagreements


People often avoid raising objections for fear of hurt feelings, retribution, or ‘not knowing the right thing to say’. 

THIS WORKSHOP shows how to become comfortable with dissent as the gift it can be. Every idea improves by talking it through until the proverbial ‘gem of an idea’ emerges, but discomfort with adversity can shut down the process before it has a chance to work. In the workplace, this means mediocre ideas go forward unchallenged or unrefined breakthroughs get dropped.

TAKEAWAYS Participants work through real-world scenarios in small groups and learn how to use ‘the language of the same side’, a way of expressing reservations and disagreements that can be used to improve ideas while preserving relationships.
