Conflicting Agreements

Conflicting Agreements

I love the various roles I’ve gotten to fill in organizations through the years. From consultant to management to volunteer, each role brings a rewarding experience. I’ve seen many strengths within each place I’ve served, but a slew of strengths are easily erased by one sole weakness. Every organization is built to handle harmony. After all you don’t partner with people you have nothing in common with. In my experience though, it’s not agreement that shape an organization, but how they handle conflict. Few places or people know how to handle disagreement. The places that learn to handle conflict openly, respectfully, and humble (after all you may be wrong) not only survive, but attract people that will challenge them to be better. How does your organization handle conflict?
