How might organisations encourage and support gracious and productive disagreement and divergent thinking?

The past few years have underlined the importance of innovation and creative problem-solving in assisting companies to adapt and overcome a myriad of issues and challenges. Innovation can foster growth, reinvigorates the employee population, allow the organisation to transition into new markets or to capitalize on new trends. Disagreement and allowing for differing viewpoints are acknowledged to be game changers in terms of sustaining an innovative environment and supporting creative problem solving. Join us to discuss potential strategies and behaviours that leaders might use to encourage productive, but gracious, divergent thinking and disagreement in their organisation.
