We like to get along at home and in the workplace. We don't want to offend anyone. Many view harmony, cohesiveness, and agreement as the building blocks for a great work culture, effective decision-making, and creativity. But they are wrong. Professor Charlan Nemeth, the world's leading expert on dissent, uses 35 years of research to show us why we need rebels. She explains how people with minority opinions need space to express themselves with no compromise. This is a show for the rebels.
Why was this book deeply personal for Professor Nemeth?
How far back can Professor Nemeth remember conforming being part of her conscious thinking?
Was there a moment when Professor Nemeth thought “why is it like this?”
What is the real danger of consensus?
Do we carry false beliefs around conflict?
The value of dissent does not lie in its correctness. So where does it lie?
We argue with dissenters; we question their motives, is this where authentic dissension is important?
Do true authentic dissenters, dissent within themselves as well as externally? 
Why are there so many people in meetings around the world who want to speak up, but won’t?
Why does the majority always rule?
Do we need the leader to provide protection, to create a safe house for dissension? 
Is there a difference between dissension and being a dissenter?
The danger with the majority is that they fail to see the bend in the road. We explain.
The original rules of brainstorming say, defer judgement. Does Professor Nemeth agree?

“Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!”. Hunter S Thompson.
