Why are people spending so much time removing “conflict from the workplace?” Perhaps conflict is required? That is what Dr. Frank Delk says in this interview where the conflict is a battle for our need to be autonomous and at the same time be part of a social group. Further, even after being aligned emotionally and intellectually to a company mission, goal, or objective, we don’t behave as if we are aligned. What causes this and what can you do about it? Finally Frank teases us about how being able to work together is a precondition to being innovative and having an innovative culture, but it isn’t the only condition to be innovative in your company. You will find this interview stimulating and provocative!
