The Fear of Conflict

Tune In: Apple Podcasts | Spotify | Google Podcast


In today’s episode we talk about the thing everybody fears: conflict. We don’t only talk about it, but I actually encourage conflict. Keep reading. It gets better. You see, I always say that conflict yields effective change. I believe in constructive discord , allowing everyone to be heard, accountability for all team members, and interest-based negotiation.  Sound better than conflict? Yes! Conflict does not have to include adversaries going toe to toe, fists banging on tables, and red faces.  I want to walk you through one of my favorite books, The Five Dysfunctions of a Team, by Patrick Lencioni, applying each of his five points to the IEP team.  I bet you leave a little more empowered and ready to dive in with deeper, more meaningful conversations with the other people on your IEP team!
