A man and a woman in a silent film arguing

Very few of us like conflict but it seems an inevitable part of life, both at home and in the workplace. But is conflict something always to be avoided? And is there such a thing as healthy conflict? As William Wrigley Jr., founder of Wrigley gum company, said, "When two men in business always agree, one of them is unnecessary." And isn't healthy conflict an instrument of growth and change?

(Executive coaching pioneer Julian Moody and I discuss conflict in the topic "Can't Get Along With Others." This topic is part of our project Dialogues with Julian Moody: On Life, Business, Sustainability, and Other Things.)
