When I ask creative teams to tell me about how they push ideas to fruition, one of the things they swear by is fighting.
You have multiple people in the room with a strong vision for what should happen. The tug-of-war of ideas is part of the creative process. The right idea is in the land of the unknown, somewhere between all of those opinions.
When people become apathetic you need to pull them back in and keep the debate raging on. That’s how you get to great solutions.
