Learning to work with people who believe differently than you is what collaboration is all about. Unfortunately, collaboration goes out the window when major disagreements strike. People compete with each other, making sure their position or interests are secured first. Or they avoid the conflict altogether, which only makes matters worse. These reactions can kill startups, simply because people haven’t been trained to collaboratively disagree with one another. This talk / workshop will highlight how one venture-backed startup was saved when its founders got training in Collaborative Disagreement™ as well as give participants the opportunity to learn the process themselves.
