This kind of advice or business motto that got spread out when things were done in a more hierarchical and less collaborative way should live in the past. It’s simply not as effective.
Bad advice like this puts wrong notions in people’s heads. When I started out my career I thought good leaders were assertive people who came up with a vision, shared it, and everyone would rally around it. I viewed dissent as a negative thing.
So continuing on the bad-advice-busting series, this week’s content will be on Dissent, why it’s so hard to deal with it and how not welcoming it makes team fail.
