When Two People in Business Always Agree, One of Them is Not Necessary

In my career, I have had many roles in organizations and partnerships to draw my experiences from. I believe collaboration is paramount in any high—performance organization. I believe “that none of us are as good as all of us.” None of us learn from people who agree with us but rather, people that will challenge us, provoke us and offer up a different viewpoint. In fact, to this day, my partners and I have “spirited debates”

in that we will challenge each other, often passionately, but always respectfully, in an effort to continuously improve our business. Quite often, this takes compromise and faith that we have each other’s best interest at heart.

I am glad that my partners and I don’t always agree, as this gives us all an opportunity to teach and mentor each other and grow.
