[FLR] | What Your Boss is Thinking When You Disagree With Them

May 5, 2017 | The “Thinking” Edition

 

Happy Friday!

 

There is one thing the best leaders are secretly looking for: people on their team to disagree with them.

 

I love what Margaret Heffernan shares. “If we aren’t going to be afraid of conflict, we have to see it as thinking.” She really reframed this concept for me. I have personally found some of the greatest breakthroughs or resolutions occurred through someone on my team having the courage to share a different perspective.

 

Next time you are going to disagree or are on the other side of the conversation, remember this as “thinking”.
