Intelligent Dissent vs Passive Agreement

Certain company cultures discourage dissent, especially with people higher up in the hierarchy. Others  allow dissent, to encourage different points of view.

Do you permit intelligent dissent in your team?

Find more pleasure in intelligent dissent than in passive agreement, for, if you value intelligence as you should, the former implies a deeper agreement than the latter.

How do you build a culture of intelligent dissent in your company or team?  How do you train people to keep emotion out of it? How do you capture the information generated by these exchanges?

If you are company building products, a culture that encourages intelligent dissent is essential to your survival.
