Differences often lead to discomfort. Discomfort may lead to suspicion. Thus your colleague becomes your enemy. A partnership turns into a cold war or an outright battle.
But if we learn to value differences in perspective, we may end up on a better trajectory. Just make sure you’re headed in the same direction (vision). Link to mission, vision, goals
Differences in perspective can lead to more depth in what you produce. It will produce a better and fulfilling end result. Avoid the narrow perspective of seeing things only your own way.
Build a team. Value differences. Develop a culture of mutual respect and accountability. Share the profits and losses.
Differences may lead to discomfort. But discomfort doesn’t have to lead to suspicion.
