If you're working on a team that's trying to accomplish big things, a little conflict is unavoidable. Actually, according to Ted Harro, it's preferable. To him, if there isn't a single disagreement among coworkers on a big project, someone is lying and frustration is festering. Productive, project-based conflict is a sign of engagement and passion. If you learn to pick your battles and stay focused, groups can have disagreements while still working as a team.
