Collaboration doesn’t always mean that everyone agrees. There will be times when you will have a difference in opinion, which is perfectly normal; as a matter of fact, it’s a great thing.
Teams that work together effectively can benefit from productive conflict. As
Adam Grant indicated: "If two people always agree, it’s a sign that at least one isn’t thinking critically or speaking candidly." Differences of opinion shouldn’t be considered threats; instead, they can be seen as opportunities to learn and grow.
Disagreement is a natural part of any healthy relationship and should not be interpreted as conflict. Every leader must create a psychologically safe workplace that encourages people to voice their disagreements freely with their colleagues and leaders. By learning to disagree respectfully, you can become a better leader while fostering a culture that encourages new leaders to do the same.
