Face Disagreement & Take It In Your Stride
This is the new reality; Anywhere you look and whichever way you put it.
Accept the difference and FOCUS on the PURPOSE of your engagement.
Its nice to say - you are working to bring consensus and generate uniformity of thought...
But, in reality, this is rarely achieved in spirit & action!
So, should you drum the flag of harmony even more - when you know it is not yielding enough?
Any amount of your argument and righty points will not make it work.
The extent to which this righteousness can be played for the benefit of a good decision-making, depends on what kind of team and business you are in.
But, if you are not resolutely and sincerely after the objectives being pursued - you are not likely to hold this lofty point - strong enough to manage the imperative pressures as a result of such pursuit.
Don't fall into the trap of taking the easy route, out of it - because :
"It just does not force you to put more time and involvement in making this work"
"It just does not make you take hard decisions which leads to other corollary discussion"
"It just is diplomatic giving some brownie points and to claim righteousness in argument"
These will only lead you to a path which does not help you achieve the OBJECTIVE/PURPOSE.
Its not going to be easy nor is it simple...
All the same, don't push yourself for the sake of standing apart and to be perceived differently.
