Positive Conflict goes beyond handling workplace conflict; its premise is that conflict is often a sign that creative energy is about to be unleashed. There is positive power inside opposition, just as with the fusion of atoms. When opposing ideas are openly explored, a breakthrough in thinking can occur, which can reveal more comprehensive solutions. And the coming together of these once-opposing forces multiplies the potential for success. If we look past a win-lose mentality, we will see that the flip side of opposition is the opportunity for discovery and innovation. And in business today, we need leaders who can reconcile the seeming exclusivity of competing ideas and fuse them for new and better results.
