…discussing a controversial topic in a volatile and complex world

✣  ✣  ✣

You want to make progress, even when several people have different, sometimes confliction opinions and perspectives.

In a complex world, there are often multiple paths towards a goal, and often experts tend to have different opinions about the same topic.

Here's how it works: If you feel strongly about an idea, but don't have a group's consensus or full agreement, ask your colleagues to take a chance on you.

“If you have conviction on a particular direction even though there's no consensus,” Bezos writes, “it's helpful to say, ‘Look, I know we disagree on this but will you gamble with me on it? Disagree and commit?’”


Express your disagreement while committing to support the implementation of the selected option.
