Brandon Adams on how lack of conflict can destroy a team’s performance

We are taught since early age that conflict is bad. Conflict breathes resentment and ultimately creates problems. However, that’s not the whole truth. In fact, conflict can be the life-line of a team. In this episode Brandon shares a story of how a team was led astray by the lack of conflict and eventually ended up failing.

In this episode we refer to the book: The 5 Dysfunctions of a Team by Lencioni.

Because understanding people is also about understanding their personality, we discuss the importance of personality models such as the DISC model. Here’s a test you can use with your team.
