You disagree? Good! Finally! Let’s hear it. What’s your opinion? How should we be doing this thing? How can we make it better? Where are the flaws?
You’re passionate about your points? Great! We need more passion. We need more people who give a damn about the work they offer the world. Great work demands more than tangential attention.
You’re worried about my reaction to your opinions as your “boss”? Well, then I am doing something terribly wrong. I’m sorry about that.
Know that your place in this company isn’t a function of submerging your opinions under a smile. I never want a table of nodding heads. I always want the best possible answer from wherever it emerges. And “best possible answers” can only take form when we get real about doing great things as a team.
Are you looking for best possible answers? Then release your team members from the straitjacket of consensus so they can contribute their best work.
