Can Aligned Organizations Have and Embrace Conflict? Oh, Yes!

In our society, conflict is usually seen as a bad thing. It’s argumentative, accusatory, uncomfortable, disrespectful. However, isn’t conflict a driver for sharper ideas, collaborative creativity and long-term success? As long as it’s respectful and used under the light of trying to make a situation better.

Aligned organizations have to have conflict. Conflict identifies disconnects, fosters varied perspectives and reveals truth. It also needs to be tied to a common theme. An organization’s mission and vision is a common thread that can unite conversation towards a singular purpose.

It’s not necessarily easy to lead a culture of respectful conflict. It takes practice and a developed ability to take your own emotions out of the equation.

In future posts, we’ll talk more about how this can be done.
