I was once hired to help a manager who was having problems with his team.
The problem was that whenever there was a disagreement or contentious issue, the manager took the discussion ‘off-line.’
The manager’s actions resulted in people believing the manager didn’t care what they thought.
The manager was so focused on having everyone like him all the time that he avoided conflict.
Disagreement and conflict are signs of something trying to happen. Not everyone is going to like everything you say or do. There are going to be people who outright disagree with you.
Rather than avoiding those who disagree, embrace that they’re a part of your growth and success?
In other words, why not thank them for their thoughts and input.
After all, they took the time to share them with you.
You’ve got this.
