Build a challenge network to provide you with dissenting views and improve your thinking
Be open to discussion regarding your views and opinions
It’s not personal. Arguments are opportunities to test and refine thinking. Discussion brings out new ways of looking at things.
Identify your most thoughtful critics and invite them to challenge you
Their role is to activate rethinking by pushing you to doubt your knowledge, be humble about your expertise, and curious about new perspectives.
Frame disagreements as debates and turn them into constructive conflict
Start a disagreement by asking, “Can we debate this?” By reframing the context of the conversation, you encourage others to adopt an intellectual approach, rather than an emotional one.
