Constructive Debate: Team Profile

Constructive DebateThink about a team you belong to or lead. Imagine that you have a difficult decision to make about an issue, problem or opportunity. Assume that people bring very different experiences, points of view, and ideas to the table. You sit down together (face-to-face or virtually, but in real time) to have a discussion and come to agreement. Based on previous experience, to what extent do you predict that the following conditions would be met by the end of the meeting?

  1. It was relatively easy for each participant to express an opinion and many have done so.
