Structured Sharing

What does a leader do when people have very different opinions about a topic?

How does a leader influence and negotiate through seemingly intractable positions?

One way is called “Structured Sharing of Conflicting Opinions.” (Cultural norms may suggest selecting an alternative approach.) Engage in a structured sharing discussion to give full voice to conflicting opinions in order to make sure everyone feels heard.

Respond to the questions in Worksheet 4c.A1.

GOAL:
