Alignment Does Not Equal Consensus

Alignment does not mean the absence of conflict. Alignment drives where we're going, even if there's conflict about how to get there. Firm alignment can also help make sure conflict is Healthy conflict.

Alignment vs consensus

  • Consensus: equal say, equal power.
  • Alignment: Equal voice in conversation, not equal power in decision.

Alter the way you see conflict resolution. Consensus and alignment do not resolve the same way.
