Elsua

"Play Devil's Advocate to Create Collaboration in the Workplace" - I Don't Agree

Michael Sampson - Currents

Writing at Talent Culture, Kirsten suggests that playing devil's advocate allows the creation of collaboration in the workplace : " The void in communication may be due to a lack of questioning. I’ve come to think that there is a lack of “why” in present day workplace culture. As always, there are exceptions to this theory, but overall I feel that people have become hesitant to ask questions in the workforce, new media, school, etc.
