Embracing Conflict and Practicing Respect: A New Choreography

By Shifra Bronznick

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), April 2004

The test of groundbreaking leadership, according to influential thinkers in the field, is the capacity to orchestrate conflict. In his landmark book, Good to Great, Jim Collins discovers that the first attribute of a great company is a leader who assembles the right team and aligns it with the right task, directs it to confront the "brutal realities" of the environment, and cultivates controversy within, letting the team debate constructively until the best ideas emerge. Bronznick explores how orchestrating conflict relates to the professional - volunteer relationship in the Jewish community.
