We all want to get along with our colleagues. It’s reassuring to feel aligned. And it’s best to avoid friction at work at all costs, right?
Wrong. Disagreement is absolutely fundamental to the health of any organisation. Otherwise poor decisions stand unchallenged and innovation dies. But it’s really important to disagree constructively – with generosity, respect and clear goals. That’s how progress is made.
No one knows more about making the most of conflict in the workplace than Amy Gallo. A contributing editor at the Harvard Business Review and co-host of the Women at Work podcast, Amy is one of the world’s leading researchers on how to get the most out of disagreements. She has researched conflict in workplaces for many years and has a clear set of guidelines and learnings for leaders and team members who need to find a way to air differences without destroying relationships, trust and culture. Amy will help you disagree – in a way that strengthens relationships, trust and culture. A maximum of 40 people will be able to take part in this two-hour and 15 minutes session on Zoom in which participants will be able to interact directly online with Amy.
Amy has run workshops at companies including Google, Deutsche Bank and Adobe.
