Energy: why are conflicts so important?

Progress - in all human activities - occurs when conflicts are identified and resolved.

For the simple fact that to achieve and maintain better results it is necessary to evolve. It means leaving the comfort zone. But... most people in Brazil hate changes. 

Usually conflicts are somewhat disguised here in Brazil. Few business and institutional environments that I have known in this country, in more than 35 years of consulting, stimulate an open discussion about conflicting analyzes.

The opposite occurs (more frequently) in developed countries where conflict is seen as a source of potential progress. New solutions emerge to improve results and enable professional development. A real win-win.

Here is a suggestion for the Brazilian leaders: take the initiative to leave their comfort zones, in search of evolution. Is there any other virtuous path, by the way?
