Leaders must be consummate relationship builders with diverse people and groups. The single factor common to every successful change initiative is that relationships improve.

We learn from people that disagree.
What do you learn when you sense an atmosphere or staff meeting like this?
Learning task: discussion
Points to ponder: Is consensus a good thing? What does disagreeing reveal?
Leaders need to commit themselves to constantly generating and increasing knowledge inside and outside the organization. Effective leaders understand the value and role of knowledge creation, they make it a priority and set about establishing and reinforcing habits of knowledge exchange among organizational members.
