Engaging in Constructive Debate

When ideas or priorities seem in conflict, how do we sustain a dynamic of constructive debate and avoid falling into the trap of unproductive argument? Top-performing leaders harness the energy of conflicting opinions and creative inspirations. People feel empowered, there's more innovation, and the best ideas win – not just the most senior, aggressive, or charismatic voices. Trust is built, not damaged, making the next conflict even easier to navigate.
