An amazing talk by Adam Baker making beautiful points around freeing ourselves from the crap that keeps us from a better life!
Whether you are facing a difficult choice within your job, changing fundamentals within your organization, on the border with customers or a product, trouble letting go within and outside of your business or even in your personal life… this talk may inspire you to look at it all and remove whatever crap you are finding hard to let go of to move forward!
There is this deep virus within organizations that we somehow have found difficult to cure… that virus is the “fear of conflict.” The fear to confront or face people in difficult situations. This fear cripples us. It keeps many from being satisfied at work, at home. It keeps us from being honest and forthright.
Most people instinctively avoid conflict, but as Margaret Heffernan shows us, good disagreement is central to progress. She illustrates how the best partners aren’t echo chambers — and how great research teams, relationships and businesses allow people to deeply disagree.
