Do you need some creative conflict today?

Interesting interview with Matt Dickinson and Eddie Jones (first published as a podcast LifeTimes) in 'The Times' today where Jones talks about creative conflict.

'If you don't have good ideas and debate, you can never get the best result.  If someone presents an idea and everyone agrees, you know it is a bad idea.  I will create conflict to make sure everybody is at the edge of their seats....I allow the opportunity for my players and staff to fail because that's where they'll learn the most....The players lead such a controlled life.  Everything is laid out for them, so you have to create a range of different experiences for them.'
