The naysayers are welcome to join us in their own time but they need to have the following terms:
1) Naysayers have no vote
2) Naysayers cannot become divisive
3) Naysayers must understand they are not the target audience
These terms help set healthy expectations for those that don’t agree but choose to stay on the team. Setting clear expectations can help those that struggle to get on board to mitigate their frustration because they know exactly where they stand. These terms are possible because it‘s important to understand that not everyone who vocally disagrees is trying to persuade the team to go their way. Some people just need the opportunity to express their perspective before they can try a new direction.
