Four-Step Process to Constructive Conflict

Practice constructive conflict by moving through four steps: 

  • assemble a diversity of perspectives
  • engage in the conflict
  • establish a shared goal or vision
  • construct hybrid solutions

The challenge is in resisting our normal impulses. Usually when it comes to conflict, we want to eliminate it or avoid it altogether. In the world of innovation, we need to not only dwell in it but also make it a regular part of our lives.
