    It's the curse faced by every leader. And it will happen to you, whether you run a company or lead a mountain climbing expedition, whether you're a football coach or the president of the United States. It's the curse of "yes". Leaders hear "yes" far too often. Your power inhibits candor. You don't hear bad news until it's too late. You get groupthink, not reality. You think you've achieved consensus, then find your decisions undermined by colleagues who never really bought in. Inevitable? Absolutely not.

What tools can leaders employ to ignite a lively, constructive scuffle? Let's examine how one chief executive created a decision process that was "confrontational by design".
