By Adrian Harvey Am I mad? Who in their right mind would want to encourage employees to disagree, surely harmony is better for the business and disagreement should be discouraged? Maybe, depends what sort of a business you are running and whether you want to be the best in your field or not. Perhaps it also depends on your management style and whether you are a dictator or not! Funnily enough, refusing to accept another who has a valid counter position is a deep and destructive character flaw. Why so? Well, if you have a workforce that is happy to.
