Stanford Professor Bob Sutton suggests two strategies for dealing with team disagreements. Never knock down ideas during the brainstorming stage. And if a team decides to go with a decision you disagree with, be the hardest worker during the idea's implementation. By committing yourself to helping make the idea a success, if it does indeed fail in the end, you will know that it was indeed a poor idea.
