Neutral Does Not Motivate

In an effort to please both extremes, many teams assume that the sweet spot on a spectrum is in the exact middle. This has just as much of a chance to displease both extremes and therefore turns the two-ended spectrum into a three headed monster of opinions. Those opinions never motivate well since extreme positions are difficult to join because of their exclusive nature. When a team disagrees, they should argue together in a way that searches for truth rather than takes sides in order to make a point. The point of the discussion should be to move the team forward and never to win the argument so that the team moves my way. If I win an argument I often lose because I have lost the insight of my teammate’s argument in a winner take all.
