    It's the curse faced by every leader. And it will happen to you, whether you run a company or lead a mountain climbing expedition, whether you're a football coach or the president of the United States. It's the curse of "yes".

You think you've achieved consensus, then find your decisions undermined by colleagues who never really bought in. Inevitable? Absolutely not.

    Use constructive conflict to drive better decision-making, greater innovation, and real competitive advantage. If an organization is saddled with a culture of polite talk, superficial congeniality, and low psychological safety, how can a leader spark greater candor?
