What do you and your business partner, your team or your clients most often disagree about? by Yonason Goldson

Funny you should ask.

I recently said to my business partner, “We need to fight about something.” After one year, we’ve almost finished developing the infrastructure to support our mission. We’ve made several pivots, each emerging organically as we refine our vision.

But we haven’t yet had a serious disagreement. And that is cause for concern.

Too much consensus suggests too much filtering, too much going along to get along, too little individual passion and diversity of thought. Ideas and relationships flourish through constructive disagreement. Hashing out differences produces the best possible solutions.

That’s why I’m itching for a fight.
