Annotation

Most people instinctively avoid conflict, but as Margaret Heffernan shows, good disagreement is central to progress. She illustrates (sometimes counterintuitively) how the best partners aren’t echo chambers — and how great research teams, relationships and businesses allow people to deeply disagree. The video includes an interactive transcript and a reading list.
