Today, Faye Davis talks with Carla Sones about the innovation and creativity that comes from disagreement. During the reading of What If by Steve L.

Our brains actively try to avoid finding better solutions because they don’t want to go through the time and energy of walking through conflict. When we choose to spend the energy to enter into disagreement, our teams end in a better space.
Better work outcomes, opportunities for growth, built trust, inclusive environments and innovation are just a few examples of the benefits we reap from walking through hard conversations.
