Topic Description:

Conflicting opinions, turf wars, customer demands, complex technological choices, and the assignment of conflicting responsibilities are the issues most likely to cripple organizations. The solution to all this chaotic change and attendance conflict is embracing the commitment to, “Let Ideas Compete—Not People”! This skillful collision of ideas CAN create new and better “3RD IDEAS.” Learning to view passionate conflict as an invaluable engine of creativity is the key to organizational and personal success.
